Learn how to make these truffles--and finish them with a golden flourish--with the step by step photo tutorial showing how to make Heart of Gold Truffles.
Lovebug Truffles are on the opposite end of the classy-cute spectrum. Ladybug shaped truffles are decorated with hearts on their wings for a special Valentine's edition I'm calling "lovebug truffles."

Finally, here's a fruity candy that'll blow you away. After tasting these truffles, I knew I had to call them Strawberry Fields Truffles because they are bursting with fresh strawberry flavor. They contain both strawberry puree and chunks of real berries, resulting in a truffle so flavorful, you'll think you're eating a fresh-picked berry. You can always decorate them with Valentine's sprinkles or candies, to make them look a little more seasonal.
