My favorite time of year will soon be upon us: Valentine’s Day! As someone who loves me some good chocolate, I always celebrate the opportunity to make something delicious. But a friend of mine shared with me a very sad fact: her husband (who loves dark chocolate, by the way) can’t eat it past mid-afternoon. He’s sensitive to the caffeine found in dark chocolate...and even to some milk chocolate these days.
So I found the perfect “alternative chocolate” truffle—one that will meet all those important dietary restrictions, plus they are super-fun to make. These honeyed marzipan and date truffles rolled in toasted sesame seeds are a sweet little bit of heaven.
