Valentine's Day Chocolate Truffles

Valentine-s-Day-Chocolate-Truffles Further Food

If you are like homemade chocolate, do I have a recipe for you. I recently made these chocolate truffles for the holidays, and everyone loved them. If you’ve never attempted to make your own truffles before, what better time to put your chocolate-making skills to the test than Valentine’s Day? These truffles are naturally sweetened and call for dark chocolate with more than 70% cacao. For Valentines Day I’d suggest adding some chopped almonds or a little cayenne pepper to heat things up a bit.

Further Food Commentary:

There is nothing better than spending Valentine's day with a loved one--and chocolate! Dark chocolate (70% and up) provides the body with plenty of iron and fiber, as well as important minerals like potassium, manganese, magnesium and zinc. It is also rich in antioxidants, like flavonols and polyphenols, which help maintain good eye vision, lower blood cholesterol and reduce gut inflammation. And it is great for those with diabetes, as it helps control blood sugar levels, thanks to its low glycemic index. At the same time, coconut oil, while high in saturated fats, is excellent for heart health, helping increase HDL ("good") cholesterol.
