Ten minute ombre chocolates

To be honest with you, I don’t always make things from scratch. Not that I don’t think things are better that way, it’s just that I don’t always have the time or it ends up taking so long that I don’t even care by the time I get the finished product. When you add all of that on top of packing up our house to move in a week, the last thing I have time to do is bake from scratch.

To keep the pretty and the practical in check for Valentine’s Day this year, I cheated by making these ten minute ombre chocolates. They’re so easy that I almost feel bad for telling you how I made these, but not sharing would be depriving the world of lots of pink this Thursday, so I’ll soldier on.

Ingredients:

  • Lindt white chocolate truffles
  • Royal icing or cookie icing packets

Microwave each color for 7 seconds and then drizzle your truffles with icing using a fork, simple as that!
