With Mother’s Day not far away, our thoughts turn to gifts that give the right message. The message usually being one of love and appreciation. No pressure then! It can be hard to find the right thing, something pretty (flowers?) and meaningful (a card?) that will make mum smile. From personal experience (being a mum and having a mum!), I know that something sweet and handmade ALWAYS wins. Knowing that somebody has taken the time and gone through the effort to create a gift from scratch makes it extra special and truffles never fail to impress. These champagne and raspberry truffles are absolutely perfect for the occasion and make the loveliest gift when presented in a pretty box.

  • 400g white chocolate
