Homemade Valentine's Chocolates Recipe
Simple truffles aren't rolled and dipped; they're just cut into small square shapes and tossed in cocoa powder. A hint of warmth from chipotle pepper adds complexity to the flavor.

Make a fun Valentine's Day project out of this recipe for dark chocolate souffles drizzled with a marvelous mocha sauce.
Homemade dark chocolate made with cocoa powder, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla is a melt-in-your-mouth treat and fits into the paleo lifestyle.
Awesome. Thank you, Chef John, for the recipe and the helpful video. Made as written except I wrapped the chocolate in parchment paper. I left it in the fridge overnight and it was VERY easy to work with the next day. The next time I made 4 batches with different flavors for gifts, but only had time to refrigerate them a few hours. The chocolate was too gooey to cut and had to be shaped. Very time consuming, and I lost a lot of precious chocolate due to the sticky mess, but the effort was still worth the delicious results. Love the recipe and will make them again - just a day ahead so they firm up. FAST, EASY, and DELICIOUS when done like the video.
The trick to making this work is before putting it on the plastic wrap, is letting it set up a bit in the fridge - maybe 5 or 6 minutes... I tried it twice EXACTLY like te recipe called for, and the chocolate was just too loose to roll. So, it dawned onme to try a few minutes in the fridge first, and voila!
If the way to someone's heart is through their stomach, these homemade treats are just what our hearts want. Get recipes and tips.
If love is the message, say it with chocolate...or edible gold dust, as is called for in this amazingly easy yet spectacular indulgence. Use the best quality chocolate you can find, and have the truffles at room temperature before dipping.
Light and not too sweet, these individual-serving chocolate souffles are the perfect dessert for two on any special occasion.
