Ruby Chocolate Rocky Road
The idea of rocky road is pretty much that: piles of rocky goodies all coated and glued together with chocolate that doesn't crack when you bite into it (thanks to coconut oil). So although I have used some fairly gourmet ingredients here, don't feel locked into that. Just go with what you have in the cupboard that you think will go well together!
Nipples of Venus (Capezzoli di Venere)
I first learned of these confections through the famous scene of the same name in the movie Amadeus. Fast forward 30-plus years later, and inspired by a viewer's request, I finally learned that these were in fact real, and very delicious, thanks in part to the star of the show, chestnuts. Serve these as a sexy snack during a Valentine's viewing of the corresponding film.
Ultimate Valentine's Day Chocolate Truffle
On Valentine's day, profess your love with elegant decadence. Fine chocolate has long been considered the 'food of love.' The sublime chocolate truffle, known for it rarity and exquisiteness, is the epitome of erotic foods. Presented simply on a silver tray with a single red rose, it says, 'You're the one.' Add a 1/4 teaspoon of your favorite liqueur to this recipe for added zing!
These are a favorite of the cookie exchange, originally from a co-worker who is a much better cook than I.
This is an easy way to have small, impressive desserts. It goes together quickly, and it can be adapted easily. Be sure to allow a good 4 hours in the fridge before serving.
I have used this recipe for almost 41 years, and have yet to have any bad batches. My grandson loves 'em!
Easy Decadent Truffles
Insanely easy, but oh so rich! Recipe makes a large amount but you can vary flavorings and coatings to make several different varieties.
Chocolate Covered Cherries
Easy, delicious cherries. Just like you buy in the box! It's best to let the candies ripen for 1 to 2 weeks.
Luscious Chocolate Truffles
These are very rich and enticing. Use red sprinkles for Valentine's Day, green ones for St. Patrick's Day and red, white and blue ones for Independence Day! Top with your choice of toppings, some we like: colored sugar, chocolate sprinkles, and colored sprinkles!
