Valentine Truffles for the Baker

I was feeling a little guilty about not having a sweet for The Baker's Valentine treat.

It's cold outside.  An inch of snow is predicted today.  I wonder what that means since six inches was predicted for Saturday and we got one inch.

No matter, I didn't want to go out so I rummaged through the cupboard and came up with

Extra Fine Marzipan (5.29 ounces)
Ghirardelli Semi-sweet Chocolate
Fine sea salt
Sugar posies from Miette's 

Marzipan and Chocolate Truffles inspired by my pantry

Cut the marzipan into 12 pieces and roll into balls
Melt the chocolate in the microwave (high about 2 1/2 minutes, stirring several times)
Dip the marzipan balls into the chocolate, lifT out with a fork and place on waxed paper
Top some with a dusting of the sea salt and, if you happen to have flowers, top some with the flowers
Let set up
Give them to your Valentine
