Oreo truffles are extremely easy to make, and they don’t take too long to whip up. You’ll want to share these truffles with friends and neighbors in our apartment community for Valentine’s day. Gift these delicious truffles to your friends and coworkers.


Salted Caramel Pretzel Snaps from Oh, Sweet Basil

Make these salted caramel pretzel snaps for a Valentine’s spent binge watching your favorite Netflix show in your apartment. These pretzel snaps are a comforting and not-too-fancy snack that we think you’ll love making on February 14th.


Coconut and Dark Chocolate Bites with Sea Salt from Tastemade

All you need to make these coconut and dark chocolate bites with sea salt is sweetened coconut, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, toasted almonds, dark chocolate, coconut oil, and sea salt. These are the perfect chocolates to gift friends for Valentine’s day.


Mint Chocolate Chip Truffles from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen

These truffles combine two of our favorite flavors — chocolate and mint. Use powdered sugar, mint extract, melted butter, semi-sweet chocolate, green food coloring and sweetened condensed milk to make the filling. Chocolate almond bark can be used for the outer shell.
