Get a pretty box for the candy and some mini cupcake holders to put each piece of candy in and wrap up a special gift. These are delicious to make for Valentine's Day and they're a wonderful Christmas gift, too.

You can find a candy recipe to make truffles here, or scroll down to find instructions for making a chocolate rose bouquet or the world's yummiest chocolate cake (could be cupcakes ...).

Chocolate Truffles

1 1/2 (12 oz ) bag of sweet chocolate

1 15 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

grated chocolate

home made truffle chocolates

Melt chocolate in double boiler or however you prefer. (editor's note: I like to use a microwave on the defrost setting.)

Add milk, salt and vanilla and stir until smooth and thick.

Remove from stove and cool. When chocolate is cool, use butter on your fingers and take about 1 teaspoon of mixture and roll into balls and coat with grated chocolate.

You can also roll the balls in red and white sprinkles for some color and then put in your mini cupcake holders.

Peanut Butter Balls

1 cup butter

1 cup crunchy peanut butter

3 cups powdered sugar

6 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips

Melt butter and stir in the peanut butter, add powdered sugar and mix until smooth and then roll into balls ( If you need to you can add more powdered sugar to make them stiff enough to roll)

Melt the chocolate chips and then dip the balls into the chocolate and put on a plate to cool. When they have cooled you can then move them to your mini cupcake holders and into your box.

You can use a toothpick, skewer or fork to dip the balls into the chocolate.

Now you are ready to show your Valentine how much you care with a special box of homemade chocolates.
