Frisky Eats: 20 Sensual Chocolate Truffles For Every Valentine’s Palate

You know what’s even better than a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day? A box of homemade, custom-curated chocolates on Valentine’s Day!

One great thing about truffles is that they are almost painfully easy to make – by and large, you melt chocolate with cream, mix in flavors, roll it into balls, cool them, and then dip them in melted chocolate and cool them again. Voilà! How much simpler can candy get? (Really, not much simpler, I know from experience.)

And another great thing is that because they’re so simple, and because they require so few ingredients, it’s easy to add flavor to them. What that means for you, Don Juan, is that I guarantee that you can find a truffle recipe to fit your paramour’s particular tastes. Does he or she like spicy stuff? Check! Are they a tea snob? Check! Coffee addict? Check! Bourbon enthusiast? Check!

Click through the gallery for a veritable rainbow of truffle recipes, and surprise your Valentine with candy that’s specially tailored for them!
