Valentine’s Day Chocolate Gifts with Chocolate at Home
Chocolate is a brilliant gift especially for Valentine’s Day. It’s so delicious and can be a very romantic present too. Here are two brilliant gifts that you would impress your partner with. The first would be lovely to make before hand and present ready made to enjoy on Valentine’s Day and the second would be a lovely gift for a foodie if you don’t feel as confident in the kitchen.
I will say this first that both of these kits are very very easy to use and you can make very tasty chocolate goodies. It takes barely any time and you don’t need any fancy equipment just a fridge and microwave.
Dark chocolate Truffle Kit
This would be a great kit to use and impress your partner with. I’ve shared these out with my friends and family and they all wanted to know where I got them from and didn’t believe I had made them from a kit.
These truffles come in a gorgeous hard shell with extra crumbly chocolate flakes on the outside. Four types of chocolate in one little treat isn’t bad. The round shells are included in the kit ready made so it’s a simple act of making the filling, piping it in, popping it into the fridge and then dunking the truffles in melted chocolate and coating with the shavings.

These were very fancy and would be absolutely wonderful at a dinner party. They would make a great gift as they make something so gorgeous and it’s so easy.
Like the truffle kit this kit contains the shells and all you need to do is mix the mousse filling then decorate. It’s so easy and makes a very tasty canapé. I would recommend adding the milk for these gradually until the mousse is nice of thick and smooth. I found I didnt need all the milk, it would have been very runny if I had put it all in.
They look so beautifu! The mix of peel, nuts, truffle and hard chocolate shell is wonderful. You’ll want a few but one is really enough. I love that everything needed to create these chocolately treats is in one box (apart from the milk or cream).
