No mere truffle

You don't have to be a chocolatier to produce or package these exquisite tokens of affection
CHARITY FERREIRA and JIL PETERS

That most ubiquitous of Valentine's Day gifts – chocolate – takes on new significance when it comes from your own kitchen. These intense, cocoa-dusted truffles are actually simple to make – so simple, in fact, that their flavor depends entirely on the ingredients you start with. A good-quality chocolate is worth the expense; choose one you would enjoy eating on its own.
