Nothing beats creamy and perfectly dense chocolate truffles; they’re easy to make, too! First, melt chocolate and mix in heavy cream, butter, vanilla, or caramel. Chill the mixture until firm, then scoop it into little balls and roll them over cocoa powder. You can even shape them into hearts for the occasion!
