California Prune Valentine Heart Chocolates
The California Dried Plum Board (CDPB) has a sweet idea to change up your Valentine’s Day gifting style this year. Most of us think the best gifts come from the heart, so instead of doing the expected for your loved ones with store bought chocolates, let’s think outside of the heart-shaped box. Why not make a homemade batch of sweet treats?
Award-winning, renowned international chocolatier Paul A. Young has created a special chocolate recipe. He highlights textures, layers and an intense flavor experience, featuring California dried plums.
