It's Valentines Day-Truffle time

That right, Truffles are the favorite for Valentines Day. You could stand in that long line at the Chocolate Shop for that fresh Truffle...Or...You could make your own. Really it only takes a little time with this recipe and I guarantee you will love them!

You will need:

2/3 cups Heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon almond Honey
1 tablespoon Light Agave Nectar
16 oz of Dark Chocolate Chips( I use 60% cocoa bittersweet)

Now mix together first four ingredients and put in a small saucepan on Medium heat. You want to heat til just warm, before it comes to a simmer. Then add the chocolate chips. Turn heat to low and stir until all the chocolate is melted.

Remove from heat and refrigerate for 3 hours. Remove from refrigerator and with a small melon scoop, scoop into ground almonds or powder sugar. What ever topping you like. Will keep in the refrigerator for a couple days. Can be frozen in airtight container for up to 3 months.

These are about 50 calories per truffle .
