A small gift, a box of chocolates or a bouquet of red roses are certainly welcome presents on Valentine’s Day. But a sweet treat prepared from the heart is the most beautiful declaration of love for lovers! The recipe for beetroot couscous truffles with a heart of sour cherries is by our food blogger Antonella Falce!



  • 100 ml milk
  • 100 g of beetroot couscous Martino
  • 100 g of white chocolate
  • about ten sour cherries
  • black cherry syrup
  • 100 g of coconut flour


Pour the milk in a saucepan and bring it to the boil, turn off the flame, pour the couscous, stir, cover with a cloth and let it rehydrate.

In the meantime, melt the white chocolate in a bain-marie. Grain the cous cous and add it to the chocolate, stirring. Add the coconut flour and the sour cherry syrup.

Stir until the mixture is fairly compact. Moisten your hands, and spread the dough on the palm. Place the sour cherry in the centre and close it to form a ball the size of a walnut, which you can place in a paper pillow.

Form the truffles and place them in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
