Chocolate Truffles by a Former Mechanic

My homemade chocolate truffles are popular with the gals.  Unfortunately, they’re pretty popular with some of my buds, too.  Oh well.

Following the well explained recipe in my cooking bible, Cook’s Illustrated, I made a batch to take to a couple of my friend’s 4th of July block parties.  Frank Sinatra would’ve been jealous with all the attention I got from the ladies.

The ganache is the secret.
Rolling the ganache into balls is the tough part.
My knife skills are non-existent. But being a former mechanic, I cheat. The “hammer when in doubt” approach always prevails.

    1. Yes, I am blessed with my friends. Always loyal, supportive and they are honest, law-abiding citizens. Of course, the occasional sweet enforces that relationship immensely. 🙂

      Thank you for taking the time to stop by while surrounded by that immense heat and humidity, Chatter Master.
