Today on The Etsy Blog, I'm sharing one of my favorite truffle recipes, ever! It's adapted from Julia Child's Amaretti Truffles recipe, and with the bunches of step-by-step photos we've put together it's nearly fool-proof! I also show you how to make these paper-party-inspired Cupid's Arrow skewers. They're so simple and there's no gluing involved. Easy peasy for those with not much time to plan a fancy Valentine's Day dessert.

Diamonds and pearls are usually given in jewelry boxes for Valentine's day, but this year I'm giving them in cookie tins! These faux precious stones are made of sugar and entirely edible.
The jewels came from a favorite online baking supply shop (here). They'd catch my eye every time I browsed the edible decorations section and I'd always wondered if they were as pretty in person as they were in the pictures online. Boy, are they ever!
The large jewels are $15 for eight, or you can get sixteen clear diamonds for the same price. I think they are lovely, well packaged and worth every penny. That said, they also sell the molds inexpensively so I ordered a couple to see if I can make them at home. I'm eager to see how they turn out!
