Cherry Chocolate Truffles with Coconut
Truffles are SO EASY! Who knew?! Recipe is here. There are a couple of things I would change about this one: 1) I would add more cherry extract than the recipe calls for, I could barely taste the cherry at all; and 2) I would pour the ganache--(look how pretty--smooth and shiny)--
into a bigger pan to cool/harden (I used an 8x8 baking pan). I think with a thinner layer of it, it would be easier to scoop/scrape into balls and I wouldn't end up using my hands to roll them. Hands aren't the best tool for ganache, it melts SO quickly.
This article was in the December 2012 issue of Food Network Magazine. I think I'll try more combinations since they're so easy.
TGIP Rating--Cherry Chocolate Truffles with Coconut--KEEPER. Delicious and easy!
Next up: A variation on these bars. With coffee buttercream. And maybe something crispy.
