Valentine Chocolate Recipe & Kamisama Kiss Avatars

 

Valentine’s Day is coming up, as is our release of Kamisama Kiss! To celebrate both this week, we’ve got some Kamisama Kiss avatars for download (like the one pictured to the right)—and we’ll show you how to make your own handmade Kamisama Kiss-inspired sweets: green tea-infused chocolate truffles!

 

As you may have seen in anime, Valentine’s Day is celebrated a little differently in Japan. Typically, this is a day for women to give chocolate to their friends and loved ones—giri choco (obligation chocolate) to classmates, acquaintances and coworkers; honmei choco (true feelings chocolate) to that special someone. Men reciprocate these gifts one month later on March 14 for White Day.

 

Regardless of whom you’re giving to this year (or if you just want to enjoy some chocolate for yourself!), here is an incredibly-easy-to-follow recipe for homemade green tea chocolate truffles, to add a bit of a fun Japanese twist to the sweets for your friends (or any cute fox-eared spirits in your life!). And if you’re looking for more Japanese-inspired sweetness, Valentine’s Day is a great chance to watch Kamisama Kiss, the show Anime News Network calls “a charming confection and a lot of good clean shoujo fun!”
