A Valentine Indulgence

Village Baking Co. Truffle Cake
by Kim Cooper
Valentine's Day is in two days and if you are snowed in and can't get out to shop for your valentine this weekend, here is the most perfectly delicious piece of chocolate that you could ever give your valentine. Our decadent Chocolate truffle cake recipe is one that you will definitely want to try. This melt in your mouth slice of heaven will turn any frown upside down...especially if you don't have a gift for your sweetheart on Sunday. Throw your apron on and show your love in the kitchen this weekend! If you are out and about, don't forget to swing by Sprouts for their nicely priced wines and our crusty artisan bread. Wine, bread and chocolate....what else does one need in life?

Lots of loaves,
