Tuesdays With Dorie – Chocolate Truffles 

This is a particularly simple recipe… really as simple as making a chocolate ganache with a little corn syrup to stabilize, and then adding whatever you like to it (or not).

I added Biscoff to the ganache… not too fine, but enough that you could enjoy some small chunks in the truffles. I then pulverized more Biscoff cookies and rolled the truffles in the crumbs when I was forming them. The more the merrier!

Thr only thing I would do differently is cut the hardened ganache into cubes rather than use a small cookie scoop, as I did. It would make the handling much easier, I think. And I didn’t use plastic gloves, though I might recommend that during the forming phase… unless you want to lick your hands like a 3 year old. Not that I speak from experience or anything… 😇

Another batch will be made; this time with Peppermint, and then rolled in crushed up Ghirardelli Peppermint bark. I think that will be quite delicious! And, they make perfect gifts, though I wish I lived close enough to my friends and family to do so. Oh well. We will have to eat them all over time ourselves. Such a hard knock life.

    Your truffles look and sound delicious. I imagine that the peppermint bark ones will be just as delicious as the speculoos ones are. I’ve been thinking of coming up ways to use up the speculoos cookies too,

  5. I like your creativity! 🙂

    You had some really good ideas. I need to take a pair of plastic gloves from my work. I like your ides for toppings.

    These were yummy! I made some by scooping and gave that up in favor of cutting into cubes. I look forward to trying different flavorings and “toppings”.
