dark chocolate mint truffles

You have several more days to plan something for your Valentine – a sweet breakfast, a batch of pink cookies, a luxuriously decadent truffle.

You may know, Valentines Day is my all time favorite. I love to celebrate love, whether it be with Jason or my favorite friends!

I’ve not ever really been a fan of V-Day, but you sort of make me want to love it. I think it’s because of how much you love and give. Hugs sweetie!

I really appreciate the combination of beautiful shapes with delicious taste. Looking at the pictures what immediately came to my mind is the gift I’m gonna give to my girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. I’ve made a private booking for one of the courses organized by Zac’s cooking school here in Vancouver – cooking classes for couples and your recipes will most certainly be among the first ones we’ll try together. :)
