Box of Chocolates

Cupid loves his chocolate!  This Valentine’s Day, we are making our own truffles.  This simple recipe is made with 70% chocolate, crushed hazelnuts and bound together with heart healthy Olivio…and LOVE!

In a microwave safe bowl, melt 10 oz of finely chopped bittersweet chocolate with 3 Tbs of Olivio Buttery Spread. Meanwhile, in a small pan, bring 1/2 cup heavy cream to a simmer with 1 tsp corn syrup.  With a rubber spatula, stir cream into the chocolate mixture.  Add 3 tbs of your favorite liquor and refrigerate for 1 hour.  Use a teaspoon to scoop mixture and use your hands to form round balls.  Roll in crushed hazelnuts and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Keep chilled until your Valentine arrives!
