A box of homemade truffles is a wonderful Valentine's gift. Although not low-calorie or low-fat, this recipe calls for using a whole food sugar, which adds a new dimension with natural nutrients.



Melt chocolate and half the butter in a pan over warm water, or in a double boiler. Add the cream, the rest of the butter, and organic sugar (or Sucanat), stirring vigorously between each additional item. Do not overheat. Stir in the liquor.

Remove from heat, place in a bowl and cool. Place the bowl in the refrigerator overnight. Once set, shape into balls and roll in cocoa, ground nuts, coconut, pralines or other coating to taste. Package as desired.
