5 Homemade Candies to Make Valentine's Day Extra Sweet

If life is like a box of chocolates, we’re hoping ours is filled with top-of-the-line handmade wonders like these. Don't forget to share.

1. It’s Truffle Season!

To make these classic confections, ganache gets infused with tons of orange-y goodness, then rolled up in nuts, cocoa powder, or sugar. Bonus: These treats last for a month in the fridge!

2. These Caramels Are Poppin’

File under: why didn’t we try this sooner? Sweet, chewy caramel is the perfect partner for crunchy, salty popcorn. The secret is taking your time with the caramel so it ends up lusciously smooth and creamy.

3. Cup Runneth Over

What’s better than a chocolate peanut butter cup? A homemade one with just a tiny hint of crushed graham cracker to create that just-right texture. (Trust us, they’re incredible.)

4. Berry Delicious

These fruity bon bons infused with real raspberry purée and a hint of (surprise!) honey will always have a place in our hearts.

5. Classic Combo, Upgraded

These treats have aaalll the chocolate and peanut butter flavors, and unlike most confections they're sliced rather than rolled and dipped. (In other words, they're faster to make!)
