Valentines Day Chocolate Truffles

In a world of convenience, where supermarket chocolate boxes and service station flowers practically jump into your arms, taking the time to make something yourself is a great way to show how much you really care.

Here is my late great Auntie Ivy’s chocolate truffle recipe. Beautifully balanced, with a hint of bitter coffee and brandy, these rich delicacies melt in your mouth.
