These are super easy to make, super delicious and are perfect for that extra special I-made-it-just-for-you treat that makes a Valentine’s gift extra special.

In fact making these took hardly any time at all – however, finding a little bit of sun to photograph them has proved quite a challenge. They are currently sitting in the kitchen, they have been there a couple of days now, constantly tempting me -  and everybody else who lives here (they look sooooooooo good!!!) whilst we wait impatiently for even a momentary glimpse of light through the grey fog.

Despite staying strong and waiting for the sunshine it seems this week is determined to be gloomy and in just a moment I will venture outside and take the photos anyway. (Hoping it doesn’t start to rain whilst I’m writing this blog!) But don’t worry - for those of you with big Valentine’s Day plans still in your future my app informs me that, if still a little cold, Tuesday will be a perfectly sunny day here - and these scrumptious little bites of chocolate berry heaven will definitely add to the perfection of the day!

This batch will make a lot of chocolates – which is never a bad thing! I think I counted 50 in my batch and I made them fairly big. So lots for you to try – just to check that they are okay of course – before you box or bag them. I used a mix of berries – blueberries, raspberries, cherries and strawberries – ah the Urban Fruit strawberries are sooooooooooo delicious – but any mix will do and you can tailor it to your someone special! ;)

So here goes – hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! :D
