  1. Tried these for Valentine’s Day and what a delicious sweet treat! Easy to follow instructions and perfect blend of ingredients. Recommend for those times when you want to treat yourself or someone else special.

  2. These were perfect for our galentines get together this year with the girls!!! So easy to make, delicious and they look super cute too! They definitely hit the spot for my sweet tooth & will definitely make them again. I also love the fact that you use very clean & simple ingredients in your recipe (like how there were just 5 ingredients in this recipe), it makes me feel more guilt free when making them knowing they aren’t packed with chemicals or things I dont even know how to pronounce lol thank you for this recipe, Yumna!! Looking forward to next months recipe 🙂

  3. We really enjoyed these! The bittersweet chocolate was a nice touch because they weren’t too sweet. We gave them out to friends and family for Valentine’s Day and they were a crowd pleaser!

  4. I made these for Valentine’s Day and they were a hit! Truffles are probably my favorite dessert and these were so easy to make. Thank you!

  5. These were so easy and fun to make! I am breastfeeding my baby who has a dairy sensitivity so I used coconut cream instead of heavy cream and vegan butter as a substitute for regular butter. I coated with sprinkles for Valentine’s Day. Overall, so cute, so easy, and tasty! I am a sucker for milk chocolate (usually) so these tasted a bit bitter but that is because of the bittersweet chocolate, I know and an easy change for next time!

    1. Thanks of much for sharing, Kelsey! Love that you went dairy free with them. You can add another tablespoon of honey to the mix if you’d like to sweeten them up a little more for next time!

  6. They were just perfect for my Valentines Day charcuterie board, simple to make yet still very much festive alongside some chocolate dipped strawberries and other goodies. They had a deep, rich chocolatey flavor. I rolled them in coconut, cocoa powder, crushed nuts and lots of sprinkles, which added lots of variety to the board. Loved the truffles!
