Chocolate Truffles is a chocolate-y melt-in-the-mouth and kid-friendly bite sized snack. It is very versatile dessert and can be incorporated with endless variations.
Lately I have been on a freezer cleaning drive. I have cleared quite many leftovers. Now it’s time for another. My freezer has no more space.
I had some ganache leftover and while removing the ice-tray from freezer, I managed to drop the ganache container and it cracked to my dismay. I had no choice but to use it asap.
The quickest item I could think of was truffles. I have made them earlier once as tarts. I had lot of ideas running around in my mind for coating – coconut, icing sugar, nuts, etc. But I chose to keep it simple and roll them in cocoa powder.
I have seen round balls by many. I tried using both melon scooper and my fingers, but they didn’t turn out even rounds.
Nevertheless the truffles are perfect in taste and perfect for a quick sweet craving. My kids gobbled them up fast.
An easy and quick recipe to convert leftover ganache into treat for kids or make them just for fun with various toppings.
They also make a lovely gift in the festive season.
- 1 cup chocolate ganache
- ¼ cup cocoa powder unsweetened
- Using a melon scoop or your fingers, remove a small portion of the ganache and quickly roll it in cocoa powder. Set aside.
- Keep repeating till you get desired number of balls.
- Store them in refrigerator or freezer. Remove and eat as you desire.
- If using leftover ganache, remove from freezer 24 hours before and keep it in refrigerator. Use straight away from refrigerator.
- Go creative with choice of topping - nuts, icing sugar, desiccated coconut, spices, sanding sugar, etc
