The #DIY Valentine's Day Box of #Chocolates

For ages we’ve heard the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so, we’ve made this easy, DIY chocolate box—filled with all his favorite sweet treats! Simply make our favorite truffle recipe (included below) and add in his favorite dipped chocolate goodies and treats. Place inside of a parchment-lined Reynolds Kitchens  bakeware dish (so nothing sticks to the bottom) lock on the top, seal with a bow and top with a cute love note!

1 pound dark chocolate, chopped
1 cup heavy cream 
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

  1. PLACE the dark chocolate in a large bowl.
  2. HEAT the cream in a saucepan until it just about reaches a simmer.
  3. POUR the cream over the melted chocolate. Add the vanilla extract and let set for 1 minute. 
  4. STIR the cream and chocolate tougher until fully incorporated and smooth.

  7. ROLL chocolate into 1-inch truffles. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheet. Toss in one of the toppings below.

Reynolds Kitchen Tip: Chocolate truffles should be rolled into topping mixture while still slightly wet on the outside. If truffles have hardened, reroll using your hands just before tossing into the topping mixture.
