Christmas Chocolate Truffles

December 9, 2011

If Mama taught you how to be patient, you can definitely make these decadent and creamy Chocolate Truffles with no problemo!  I, on the other hand, suuuuck at waiting.  ((I’m not gonna lie, while they were “setting” I stole a couple —no, no, like 5 spoons of Ganache bc I couldn’t wait))!!

Patience is a virtue that I do not have BUT if you master the waiting part, you’ll have some yummy little Chocolate Ganache Drops to share with your loved ones =D

How to Make the Ganache:

  • 2 1/2 cups of good quality Bittersweet or Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream + 1 Vanilla Bean
  • 2 tb Liquor (Bourbon/Whiskey, Rum, Grand Marnier, Kahlua, Frangelico, etc)
  • Sprinkle of Salt (Smoked Salt or Sea Salt would be especially delicious in this)

*Remember to not scald your milk.
*You can set the Ganache on your counter top (if it’s not too warm in your house) for several hours.  If you’re pressed for time, you can  pop ’em into your fridge for 2-3 hours — take it out, scoop, then return back to the fridge for 30-45 minutes or so.  If you’re really, really, really pressed for time, you can zap the whole mixture into the microwave, freeze the mixture and proceed.
*Roll in crushed Candies, Nuts, Dusted Cocoa, even dip in more Chocolate!
