Valentine Truffle Hearts

valentine truffle hearts

For a special decadent delight, prepare a batch of Valentine truffle hearts to treat your favorite Valentine this year.

The simple recipe below is so delicious but really a winner when it comes to homemade chocolate valentine candy.

You can really use most any truffle recipe and adapt it to the valentine theme by making heart shaped truffles, but I've included a really yummy recipe below to get you started.


If you aren't interested in making your own truffles, you can order mouthwatering gourmet truffles online from places like zChocolat or Dan's Chocolates


Each has their own unique style and range of prices, so you can compare and decide. They are both delicious! If that doesn't suit you, here are a few more choices...


Truffle Hearts Recipe

valentine heart shaped truffles
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  1. Combine powdered sugar, cream cheese, cocoa powder, and nuts, stirring until well mixed. Press mixture onto waxed paper surface and roll to about 1/2" thickness. 

  2. Using a heart shaped candy cutter or small cookie cutter, cut out shapes.

  3. Hearts can be dipped in tempered chocolate, or rolled in powdered sugar or cocoa powder. Another idea is to use valentine cake decorations or sprinkles to dress up your truffles. 

Place finished truffles in valentine paper candy cups or present in a heart shaped box or candy dish. Your sweetheart will love these special chocolate gems.

You will find the paper candy cups, sprinkles, heart shaped candy confetti, and even boxes and bags for wrapping at Candyland Crafts

Recipe makes 1 dozen.

I hope these Chocolate Valentine Truffle Hearts make your sweetheart sit up and take notice! :) Happy Valentine's Day!
