It’s one of my MOST FAVORITE times of the year: Valentines!!! I don’t know what it is about these B-list holidays (that arguably aren’t nearly as important as the A-lister Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving), but I just love them so much. Halloween and Valentines Day will always get me so excited!

As such, I always look forward to celebrating them BIG on the blog. Here’s a list of the previous Valentines Day-centric recipes I’ve published before:

Whether you’re planning a special night for your loved one or a big celebratory Galentines Day, I hope you get some good ideas from what we’ve got coming in the next week and what I’ve previously published!

TODAY, we’re featuring these Chocolate Strawberry Truffles! The concept is simple: make a luscious truffle (they’re so easy) and then roll them in freeze-dried strawberry powder. The finished truffles are chocolatey and with that perfect strawberry punch. I love them so much! For the strawberry powder, you have a couple options. You can either grab freeze-dried strawberries (like these) and blend them into a powder yourself (use a standard blender or bullet) OR you can snag it already powdered (like this).

These Chocolate Strawberry Truffles are so luscious and a great way to celebrate Valentines Day! Their creamy dark chocolate center is balanced by the tart strawberry powder on the outside. A perfect dessert for a night in or Galentines Day!

Ingredients  

  • 20 ounces dark chocolate 70% or higher, finely chopped
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk warmed
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup freeze-dried strawberry powder

Instructions 

  • In a small pan, bring the coconut milk to a simmer, then remove from heat. Make sure the coconut milk is just barely at a simmer when you remove it from heat, if it is boiling it can burn and ruin the chocolate.
  • Add the chocolate, butter, and salt to a medium-sized bowl, and pour over the warmed coconut milk. Whisk the mixture until smooth.
  • Refrigerate the mixture for at least four hours to harden.
  • Once hardened, use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture into a ball and roll in the strawberry powder.
  • Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

  • If your chocolate seizes, you can microwave it on low power (or defrost setting) in 15 second intervals, stirring each time, until it comes back to temperature.

    So disappointed. Follow directions to a T and the chocolate seized. That’s a pricy mistake!

  2. These are SO SO SO delicious, and incredibly easy to make!! I had some extra crushed walnuts from another recipe that I had just made, so I added those to the strawberry powder mixture and it was ah-mazing! 🙂

  3. Do you melt the chocolate as well as the butter before adding to the coconut milk?
    And any idea how much freeze dried strawberries will give you 1 C powder?
    Thanks!!

  4. These look amazing! Any recommendations for a sub for the butter? I don’t tolerate dairy very well. Maybe coconut oil?

  5. Any idea how I could make these with baking (unsweetened) chocolate sweetened with an unrefined sugar like coconut sugar or maple syrup? Looks delish!
