Nutty Chocolate Truffles

So it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow, and this year I decided that instead of going through all the faff of making something decadent and swoon-worthy (like my previous Black Forest Chocolate Fondant’s), I’d make something super easy that didn’t require too many ingredients but still tasted good.

Such a romantic.

Tbf, these chocolate truffles are delicious and would definitely make a really cute gift to give to someone you love! Or yourself. It’s important to love ourselves too, right?

Shameless sexy photo of melted dark chocolate. Standard.
