Chocolate champagne truffles are quite possibly the most romantic chocolate of all, favoured by romantics each February as Valentine's Day gifts for their loved ones.

Bite size balls of chocolate blended with one of France's best known exports are loved by many.

Picking the best champagne chocolate truffles for Valentine's Day can be a daunting task though, as there are so many to choose between. Do you go for milk, dark, or white chocolate? Do you go for a punchy helping of champagne or a milder option? A simple box or an elegant heart shaped box? Fear not, as I scoured the web to find my favourite boxes of champagne truffles I could find.

I've ordered my list by price, with the most expensive first.

Pink champagne truffles are a fabulous option for Valentine's Day as they tie in seamlessly to a colour scheme of reds and pinks. This drum of Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles by London's high-end store Fortnum & Mason contains a generous helping of around 48 bites of chocolatey-champagne deliciousness.

Their recipe uses natural pink-coloured white chocolate for the shell while the core is a blend of milk and dark chocolate together with Marc de Champagne (3.6%). The truffles are dusted in icing sugar before being placed into the double layer drum.

This new range of champagne truffles by Hotel Chocolat comes in reusable packaging to help minimise packaging waste. And with shiny metallic silver and rose gold keepsake tins as cute as these, you'll want to reuse them, perhaps for storing jewellery or knick-knacks.

This duo set contains both the classic Champagne Truffle as well as the Pink Champagne Truffle, so you get the best of both worlds. The pair both make use of fiery Marc de Champagne, cream, and smooth milk chocolate, with the addition of strawberry in the case of the pink truffle.

£19.95 | Milk Chocolate & Popping Candy

Think of champagne truffles and you'll think of round balls chocolate dusted in icing sugar. So, these cubes from Rococo Chocolates are refreshingly different. They also feature some extra fizz through the medium of popping candy, adding an extra, livelier dimension to the concept of a champagne truffle.

This oval single-layer box of 10 hand-crafted truffles sees Marc de Champagne blended with Valrhona's Jivara milk chocolate. Popping candy adds back some of the fizz lost from the Champagne when it's blended with chocolate. Plus, it's a quirky, novel interpretation that is something a bit different from the norm.

Paul A. Young Fresh Champagne Truffle (Loose)

£15.50 for 9 chocolates | Milk Chocolate

Inside the Champagne Truffle
My Champagne Truffle I purchased from Paul A. Young

I fell head over heels for this champagne truffle last year, and the reason was sheer simplicity in the recipe, allowing the individual ingredients to shine clearly. The recipe features two ingredients - Guittard 38% Soleil d’Or milk chocolate, and champagne. That's it. No stabilisers, no preservatives, no added sugar, no nasties, no nothing. The flavour is as pure as can be, with the creaminess of the chocolate clearly detectable alongside the gentle warmth offered by the champagne.

The downside is that these fresh chocolates need to be consumed pretty quickly. My advice, should you find yourself near London in the first two weeks of February, would be to buy them fresh from Paul A. Young's London boutiques as close to 14th February as you possibly can. You'll find them on the table (subject to availability) along with other seasonal chocolates.

I've written about Love Cocoa several times before, such as their Earl Grey tea chocolate and their subscription service. This creation takes the humble champagne truffle and enhances it using tart raspberry.

At its heart is a fresh cream ganache which is delicately infused with Marc de Champagne and a smooth raspberry puree. This is then encased in a creamy white chocolate shell and decorated with freeze-dried raspberry pieces.

It's presented in a 150g reusable board drum that contains around 12 truffles.
