When life gives you leftover ganache, you make truffles. Duh!
Earlier this week, I posted on chocolate ganache cupcakes. The original recipe was intended for a cake. But, last minute I decided to convert them into cupcakes. I’m really good at throwing myself for a loop. So I used a lifeline and phoned a friend, aka my sister. (We’re gonna own a bakery together one day; she just doesn’t know it yet.) After consulting with her, we decided it would be best to fill these suckers. Next thing you know, the cupcakes are filled, and I have a ton of ganache leftover. (In case you were worried, I tweaked the recipe for the cupcakes so that you wouldn’t have this same unfortunate problem.)
I’ve said it before—nothing goes to waste in this house. Prime example. So I stuck the ganache in the fridge until I could figure what to do with it. A couple light bulbs later, and you can guess what happened. Chocolate truffles were born. Scoop it. Roll it. Eat it. That was easy. So easy I felt like a fraud.
