Nothing says Valentine's Day like chocolate. This year, skip the heart-shaped cardboard box and make your own chocolates, but show that you really care by making them with beer.
While this truffle recipe is wildly easy, it does take some time. If you are patient, they should rest in the fridge overnight, but if you can't wait (we couldn't), they should sit in the fridge for at least 3 hours to form their shape before serving. We make our truffles with Chocolate Maple Porter, enhancing the rich chocolate flavor. Any stout or porter will do the trick, but using a chocolate-y beer lends a rich creaminess that you'll be happy you had.This recipe makes about 20 medium-sized truffles.
