Happy Valentine’s Day truffles

imageHappy Valentine’s Day everyone. I hope you have someone to love you. I hope you love someone.  In fact, I hope your life is full of love!

Even when things hit rock bottom, love conquers all. On the love front, I’m a very lucky lady, because I feel so very loved and so very blessed to be loved. So to share the love, today I’m posting my uber tasty recipe for chocolate truffles. I made these a few years back for a friends Christmas party. Then I made them with orange oil, but for Valentine’s Day, I’ve used espresso powder and rose water.


  • 12oz of dark chocolate (I used 85% cacao)
  • 250ml of coconut milk (this equates to 1 cup – I used the cream from a can of coconut milk)
  • Pinch of salt (for good measure!)
  • Flavourings of choice (I used rose water and espresso powder)
  • Raw cacao powder, freeze dried strawberries and/or ground walnuts to roll the truffles in.


  • Melt the chocolate and milk in a pan and add the salt. Add flavouring. I split my mix in 2 and added coffee to one lot and rose water to the other.
  • Place the mix in the fridge overnight to set.
  • Roll the truffle mix into small balls and coat in the raw cacao, walnuts or freeze dried strawberries.


  1. You can substitute the coconut milk for double or whipping cream.
  2. You can add honey or maple syrup to the chocolate mix or a lesser cacao percentage if you want them sweeter. I usually add a splash of maple when I’m making truffles for the kids.

Enjoy! Yummy!
