TIPS FOR MAKING THESE SWEET TREATS:

  • Use Wilton candy melts for best results, the wafer chocolate melts the best. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil to other melted chocolate chips to help them melt and pour better.
  • Lay the chocolate covered treat on a parchment lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate truffles in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before serving.

Easily make this recipe into Valentine cake pops by adding a dab of melted chocolate to the end of a lollipop stick and placing the stick into the bottom of the truffle heart.

These Valentine’s Day truffles are a fun addition to a cookie baking exchange this holiday season! Try using peppermint extract, milk chocolate chips, golden oreos, different colored candy melts, crushed candy canes, white chocolate drizzle or red sprinkles for a totally different look.
