Aromatherapy Tip

This is my favorite treat for a Valentine’s evening or any special occasion: Eat these truffles slowly in order to let the Lavender scent rise from your tongue to the back of your nose, sending a message of tranquility and that all is well. •    8 oz cream cheese softened •    16 oz semisweet chocolate •    2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil •    cocoa powder Beat cream cheese in large mixing bowl at medium speed with electric mixer until smooth. Meanwhile melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Mix melted chocolate with softened cream cheese.  Add Lavender drops and stir well. Refrigerate for an hour. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls; roll over cocoa. Refrigerate. Enjoy, Cristina
