Valentine’s Inspiration

We say Valentine’s Day isn’t just for romance, it’s a great reason to have a little FUN and a lot of chocolate! Here is a super simple, and super yummy recipe for our favourite Chocolate Truffles. Perfect activity for the kids to get in on too!

What could be sweeter than a heart shaped chocolate brownie! We tried out our Stonewall Kitchen Chocolate Brownie mix in our Le Creuset heart shaped pan – and the results were super cute and DELICIOUS! 

We topped ours with a dusting of icing sugar, crushed pistachios, dried rose petals and a side of freshly whipped cream. So perfectly Valentine’s! 

Served on our Emile Henry red dishes.
