Valentine Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Valentine's day easy chocolate truffles
Incredible indulgent and extremely easy, this chocolate truffles recipe is from the guys next door at The Laid Back Coffee Company, and will definitely be a crowdpleaser. We're going to admit, there's nothing healthy about this recipe - although it does use dark chocolate, which is meant to be a superfood, right?! Oh, and it's gluten free, depending on the coating you use. 

But perhaps Valentine's day is a good reason to forget the healthy lifestyle you've been following since Jan 1st, and just enjoy? 

These are great as they can be made in advance:
