It’s Almost Valentine’s Day!
What is the best part of Valentine’s Day?! The chocolate, of course!
I’m kidding! Slightly….
But seriously, one of the best things about Valentine’s Day is coming up with lots of fun sweet treats to give the ones we love.
This year, my friend, Kathleen, and I were talking about making chocolate truffles. She brought up an amazing flavor combination that I had to try… orange, rosemary and black pepper.
This is one of the coolest things about knowing a pastry chef like Kathleen – they always come up with awesome flavor combos!
Now, you may be thinking “I don’t know about this whole sweet-and-savory-in-one-bite kinda thing…”
Well, let me tell you ….. this flavor combo is AMAZING!
The orange zest gives a bright citrusy flavor, which contrasts so perfectly with the deep woodsy, earthy tones from the rosemary, with just a hint of spice from the black pepper.
Now pair these flavors with the rich, creamy, unctuousness of a dark chocolate truffle… divine!
This Valentine’s Day treat is a cinch to make too. Just one bowl, 5 ingredients, and you have yourself some homemade gourmet truffles, right in the comfort of your own kitchen.…
