Personalized Chocolate Chambord Truffles >

On 02.06.2015 by Chris Cockren

It's February.  And I didn't even need to pay any attention to the frigid temperatures or piles of snow on the ground here in NY to figure it out.  Nope, all I have to do is take one step in any store and I'm plastered with heart shaped boxes filled with mediocre (at best) filled chocolates, overpriced roses, and a general overload of anything red and pink.  Hello Valentine's Day.

When we were married, Chuck and I received a lovely cake plate and dome as a wedding gift. For nearly 21 years, it has found a home in our kitchen; on the island, the table or the counter, and I always keep it filled with tasty and delicious baked goods.
