It may not be the case for everyone, but this mom loves chocolate.
I’m making a variety of these raw chocolate truffles for all of the special moms in my life this year for Mother’s Day. Of course, I’ll be storing some in the freezer for my own Mother’s Day treat as well! My little man isn’t big enough to make me anything, but he recently got the hugging thing down and offers me hugs and kisses all day long. That is better than any gift in my opinion!
Here we are back when this special little human being entered our world. Almost two years later and he brings us more joy than we could have ever imagined. I had quite a rough couple of years prior to getting pregnant with him, including infertility issues and losing twins to a rare chromosomal abnormality at 12 weeks.
Asher was our little miracle and I thank God daily for giving me the gift of being his mom. His name means blessed and happy, and it couldn’t be more accurate! As a toddler, his sense of wonder and excitement make me see life through new eyes every day. The simplest things will make a huge smile spread across his face and his blue eyes light up. And that laugh. Oh, that little infectious laugh!
I swear my heart could explode with the incredible amount of love I feel for this kid!
Being a mom is by far my greatest achievement. It is the hardest job in the world, but incredibly rewarding. Having the responsibility of molding and shaping a human life is a lot of pressure, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I want to honor all of the mom’s in my life this year by telling them that I admire them for all they do… and by giving them chocolate.
Here’s two different flavors in addition to my Mandarin Chocolate Truffle. The base ingredients and directions are all the same, but you can play around with the flavor and outer coatings. I like to roll the Pink Sea Salt Truffles in the hard chocolate coating, but I prefer the Cappuccino Truffles rolled in a little cacao powder.
