Romantic Recipes for Two
by Sheri Rose Shepherd
I love chick flicks. I love the romance and the heart connection seen on the big screen between a man and a woman. Too many times we are told that a Christian marriage does not need romance, and we are made to feel guilty for craving it. However, never before has an upcoming generation so needed to see love expressed romantically between a husband and wife.
Our heavenly Father understands a woman’s desire to feel loved and romanced by her man. He also knows the passion that burns inside a man for a woman. After all, He created that kind of love!
Midnight Chocolate Truffles
½ cup heavy whipping cream
8 ounces dark chocolate baking bar, broken into pieces
½ cup finely chopped nuts (optional)
½ cup shredded coconut (optional)
Cocoa powder (optional)
If the two of you cook these together and feed them to each other, you’ll decide that chocolate has never tasted so good!
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Heat cream to a gentle boil in medium-size heavy saucepan. Remove from heat and add the chocolate.
2. Stir until mixture is smooth and chocolate is melted. Refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly thickened.
3. Drop chocolate mixture by rounded measuring teaspoon onto the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
4. Shape or roll into balls. Coat each chocolate ball with nuts, coconut, or cocoa, if desired.
5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
