Homemade Valentine's Candies: White Cholocate Cointreau Truffles & Chocolatey Kahlúa Candies ♥

What kind of blogger would I be if I didn't share my Valentine's Candies? I stumbled across "Bailey's Chocolate Truffles" on Gimme Some Oven's blog earlier this week and thought they looked delicious. I decided I would use their  recipe and make a few changes. Maybe I should have just stuck to the original recipe! Anywho, here is my attempt at homemade Valentine's Candies!

Obviously, I used 12oz of White chocolate for my White Chocolate Truffles. This recipe is easy to change-up according to your personal taste. For my second batch of candies, I switched out white chocolate and orange liqueur and used 12oz of semi sweet chocolate and Kahlua.


 Decorating my chocolatey Kahlua candies without a heart shaped cookie cutter...

First, I poured the melted chocolate out onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. I put this in the refrigerator for a few minutes to slightly harden (I kept a closer eye on it this time around!). Then I used a round cookie cutter (I didn't have a heart-shaped one). I decided that I could make a small stencil out of parchment paper and drizzle melted white chocolate to create a heart on my candy.
 Again, here I go embracing imperfections! They turned out pretty cute

 On an even SWEETER note: 
Today we welcome into the world 
the best Valentine of all 
our beautiful niece! 

Aunt Jilly & Uncle Zachy cannot wait to kiss your cheeks in just a few weeks! 
We love you!

Happy Valentine's Day!
