Mother’s Day is fast approaching and our Mom’s deserve a special treat. Maybe it is a homemade edible gift, or something for the bath, or a gift that will just make her days better. And every time she tastes, or uses that gift, she will remember how thoughtful you were in taking the time to make something just for her.
Dark Chocolate Cocoa Dusted Truffles
If your Mom is a dark chocolate fan, why not make homemade truffles? They will be better than store-bought – and much more thoughtful. Get the recipe for Chocolate Truffles.
Dark Chocolate Ganache
If truffles are a bit too hands-on crafty for you, how about a jar of chocolate ganache? Anyone – even non-cooks – can make this. It can be warmed gently and drizzled over ice cream, sorbet, or cake. You can use it as a dip for fruit and pretzels. Place in a pretty jar and tie with a ribbon. Get the recipe for Chocolate Ganache.
Salted Caramel Sauce
If Mom is not a chocolate fan, our Salted Caramel Sauce might be the way to go. It, too, can be warmed gently and drizzled over ice cream, sorbet, or cake.
