I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I actually hate and am terrible at making chocololate ganache. I can never get it’s consistency right. Ganache is meant to be smooth and silky but when I make it, I end up with a large mound of sticky, gooey chocolate.
Today, I attempted again and failed miserably. I was staring and poking at the bowl of wasted chocolate when I realized that I could actually make chocolate truffles! Whoopppeeee! It wasn’t a complete waste, after all.
I’d share my ganache recipe with you but the truth is that I don’t follow one. Hmmmm. Maybe that’ll explain the unsuccessful attempts. So here is a ganache recipe from a more reliable source, Ina Garten. 🙂
It also happens to be my chocolate-loving niece’s 23rd birthday tomorrow so it’s the perfect time to have lots of chocolate around the house. Happy birthday, Ge!
