Dark Chocolate Grand Marnier Truffles

February 5, 2015


Author Notes: Fellas,
Rather than handing your LadyLove a heart-shaped box of creme filled cliches this Valentine's Day, why not go the extra mile and impress her with these simple hand rolled truffles. Chocolate is an aphrodisiac and I'm fairly certain men who cook from the heart are too. So grab an apron and prepare to get lucky.
