Looking for a healthier option for your sweetie during Valentine’s Day? These unique Chocolate Truffles with Strawberry Cream are paleo and vegan, so they fit any special diet! This post was originally featured as my guest post on Real Everything
We are almost a week into February already and you know what that means? Valentine’s Day is 8 days away and that means chocolate and sugar over-load for many people. And yes, this is also a subtle reminder for guys reading this as well: Valentine’s Day is only 8 days away- don’t procrastinate!
Valentine’s Day, like most holidays, can be an excuse to eat lots of sugar and candy, especially chocolate. If you or your family have food allergies, it is a pretty good idea to avoid boxed chocolates because of cross contamination and mystery ingredients. One such box of chocolates sent my daughter to the emergency room several years ago.
If you are looking for healthy and safe treats to give to loved ones on Valentine’s Day, these home-made chocolates are an easy treat.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with this recipe! My husband likes chopped almonds added to the chocolate, but I made these without almonds so my kids could have them, too. You can the chocolate into truffles, or you can spread the chocolate mixture on waxed paper and cut with cookie cutters, as I did in the photos. You could also use dehydrated blueberries instead of strawberries for a fun twist!
Another way to make these is to roll the chocolate “dough” into balls and pressing a divit into the top to add the strawberry cream!
