Vegan Valentine Cashew Cream Truffle Squares

Vegan Valentine Cashew Cream Truffle Squares

I decided to make some homemade truffles for my friends and family for Valentines Day this year. This is such a good recipe and makes super delicious, healthy truffles. I decided to use both white and dark chocolate for the coating on top. I also put some red food dye in the white chocolate (which is not vegan), after all the truffles had been dipped, to make the drizzle on top of the truffles a bit more festive. Put them in some nice boxes with a bow to make them perfect for gifts.

Vegetarian Tex-Mex Crispy Potato Skins

Tex-Mex Crispy Potato Skins

This recipe was so easy to come together and was a huge success with the family. I did a sort of taco twist on these potato skins which was both fun and added more flavor and fun to the meal. Instead of just using the regular toppings, I put some other toppings in some bowls for people to dress up the potato skins. I had bowls with cheese, caramelized onions, bacon (for the meat lovers), cheese, and diced tomatoes. I also mixed up some of the potato that was removed earlier with some salt, pepper, and a bit of butter to add to the skins or just on the side. It was a great take on your standard potato skins.
