These are easy to make for your special someone. Flavor them with your favorite extract and have them ready to surprise your Valentine with.

Prep time
Cooking time
Servings 3 dozen


14 squares (1 ounce each) semisweet chocolate, divided
1 cup whipping cream
1/3 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
1 teaspoon rum extract or vanilla (or favorite) extract
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts (or favorite nuts, even coconut), toasted


Coarsely chop 12 squares of chocolate; set aside. In a saucepan, heat cream over low heat until bubbles for around sides of the pan. Remove from heat; add chopped chocolate, stirring until melted and smooth. Cool to room temperature. Stir in butter and extract. Cover tightly and refrigerate until firm (at least 6 hours).

Grate remaining chocolate; place in a shallow dish. Add nuts; set aside. Shape tablespoonfuls of chilled chocolate mixture into balls. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. If you find that your truffles are soft, simply refrigerate them until they are easy to handle. Roll truffles in chocolate-nut mixture. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
