Make a big statement this Valentine’s Day by making these super decadent and luxurious DIY Personalized Chocolate Chambord Truffles.
Oh, hello February. You’re here. And I didn’t even need to check a calendar to realize it. Nope, the frigid temperatures and piles of snow and ice on the ground here in NY were clue #1. And clues #2 through #10?Just step into any store. Your eyes will be bombarded with heart shaped boxes filled with mediocre chocolates, overpriced limp roses, and a general overload of all things red and pink.
Yup. Valentine’s Day is this week. Are you ready? Do you have that special something for your special someone?
Guys in the room… I’m gong to hook you up and save the day. Sure, we of course could take the easy road and just snag one of those $9.99 boxes of chocolate and run to grab one of the few Valentine’s Day cards left on the shelves (because, duh, we again waited until the very last minute to get a card), but that special woman in your life deserves something… special.
A gift that screams, yup, I am super thoughtful, romantic, and actually created this very special DIY Valentine’s Day gift just for you. Gentlemen. This is how you win on Valentine’s Day this year.
And ladies. Don’t you go anywhere. You know your man would totally enjoy these Chocolate Chambord Truffles. We might not oooo and awww at the cute-sy DIY lettering stuff, but we’ll be all over the flavor party going on in these Personalized Chocolate Chambord Truffles.
That’s right. I totally went to the local arts and crafts store (in a crazy snowstorm, might I add) to buy a letter stamp kit. And yea, it’s a super cheesy touch to these truffles. But hey, Valentine’s Day is that kinda holiday.
Please tell me you’ve seen one of those #pinterestfail round-ups floating around the interwebs. So hysterical. Good news is that these Personalized Chocolate Chambord Truffles are totally do-able… and this is coming from the king of arts + crafts fails.
As your date for the evening is slowly savoring ever little morsel of these rich and decadent truffles, you can explain to them how they were made without any heavy cream. Blasphemy! Truffles can’t be made without heavy cream!
No, really, there’s no heavy cream up in here. Instead, these truffles just use some butter and an egg yolk! It makes for one super luxurious and creamy truffle experience.
And now that Asheley and I are expecting our little miracle to arrive this June (I’m excited and terrified all at the same time), it’s extra important to me that every single piece of food that enters Asheley’s body is 100% safe. And thanks to Safest Choice Eggs and their awesome pasteurization process, I can have 100% peace of mind as I watch her devour these Personalized Chocolate Chambord Truffles.
