Well, not literally, but if you make these chocolate gourmet goodies, you’ll certainly have chocolately lips for some chocolatey kisses!

Here goes for an easy and tasty make for Valentine’s Day (or any other day!):

Rich chocolate truffles

Makes 30

150 ml double cream

200 g dark chocolate with 70% cocoa solids, finely chopped

100 g milk chocolate, finely chopped

2 tbsp brandy, or your favourite liqueur

cocoa, sifted, to dust

1. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper to put the truffles on. In a small pan, bring the cream to a simmer, remove from the heat and immediately pour over the chopped chocolate with the brandy and leave to melt, stirring once to combine.

2. Leave to cool completely at room temperature, then chill for 4 hrs until set.

3. When the mixture has set, use a teaspoon to spoon out bite-sized pieces. Dust your hands lightly with cocoa to prevent them from sticking and roll the pieces into balls in the palms of your hands. Roll in cocoa to cover.

Eat and…chocolate kisses guaranteed!
