Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle

This week for Sunday Supper we wanted to feature recipes that would make a great date night for two since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Check out the recipes below to find everything you need for a romantic dinner for two: appetizers, entrees, drinks, and desserts.

For this Sunday Supper, I wanted to provide an easy dessert recipe that can be treated like finger foods. I find truffles to be a great way of packing indulgence into a single bite. These chocolate hazelnut truffles are a creamy dark chocolate and coffee center covered in chopped hazelnuts. They’re incredibly easy to make too! To make clean up easy, use food gloves when rolling the chocolates, that way all the mess goes in the trash with minimal washing.

Join the #SundaySupper conversation on Twitter this Sunday! We tweet throughout the day and share recipes from all over the world. Our chat will start up at 7pm EST, so follow the #SundaySupper hashtag and be sure to include it in your tweets to join in on the chat.

    *There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
