A Valentine’s Day Treat – Chocolate Arbequina Truffles

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, many of us immediately associate it with big heart-shaped boxes of assorted chocolates. Rich, decadent assortment of milk and dark chocolates filled with caramel, nougat, fruit, nuts; you name it! But, have you ever tried an extra virgin olive oil chocolate?

Fruity, floral, bitter and spicy are flavors often attributed to high-quality extra virgin olive oil as well as chocolate. So, naturally they work really well together. In fact, when you use a naturally fruity olive oil such as Arbequina, the olive oil enhances the fruitiness of the dark chocolate, making the Chocolate Arbequina Truffles possible.

If you want to really wow your Valentine this year, try your hand at making homemade truffles. With 5 simple ingredients, truffles come together quickly and easily. You can find the full recipe for Alice Medrich’s Chocolate Arbequina Truffles, featured in the video below, on our website.
