These treats look fancy and luxurious, but they couldnt be easier to make. Since the truffle base is made from just two ingredients, using good-quality chocolate is key. Explore any fun toppings you like, from the traditional cocoa powder, to powdered sugar or your favorite chopped nuts or candy, to any of the more exotic flavor combinations below. Offer them to your sweetheart, serve them to guests after dinner, or pack them up for gifts—but make sure to save some for yourself!
Chocolate truffles are a classic Valentine’s Day treat, but they can cost a pretty penny. Instead of shelling out hard-earned cash, make your own treats at home with just two ingredients: chocolate and cream (how much vitamin K in cream?).
Cream cheese truffles are neat, but the superior one is goat cheese truffles.
Feel free to play it by ear if you make this yourself. Mix some salt and oil (a pinch and 2 tbsp, respectively) with a cup of yogurt and a bit more than a tablespoon (they call for one tablespoon and a teaspoon) of curry powder. Mix to combine, and you have a marinade for your chicken thighs. Then spread out the thighs in a baking sheet and cover them with the spread before putting them in a plastic baggie, but you could probably skip the step (and the dirty dish) and just put the chicken and the spread into the bag, seal it, and toss to coat. Let them marinate for a few hours. Then when you get home from work (or the next day,) bake them at 425 degrees F for about 20 minutes, or until they’re done. That’s all there is to it.
You can even use some of the drippings from the baked thighs to turn leftover yogurt into a flavorful dip you can pair with the meal.
