If you love someone don't set them free. Make them truffles instead.
Valentine's Day is tomorrow so Ma Fille and I wanted to make truffles for you. Well, for us but maybe this will inspire you to make them for you and yours.
300 ml heavy cream
1 tblsp unsalted butter
300 g dark chocolate, 70% is best
1 tsp vanilla
powdered sugar, cocoa powder, chunky sea salt, chopped pecans or your favorite nut for coating
Warm cream and butter to just simmering not allowing it to get too hot.
Break chocolate up into a glass bowl.
Pour warmed cream and butter over chocolate, stirring rapidly until melted. Add vanilla, stir to combine.
Allow the chocolate cream mixture to cool and it will harden a bit as it does. 25 minutes or so is all you really need. Don't put it in the refrigerator.
Get ready for a mess. A super fun, gooey, chocolaty mess. I actually don't even do this part myself but leave it to the big kids cause they love getting super chocolaty and messy.
Your Valentine will be forever yours. Love hearts from the South of France.
