Raspberry Ganache Truffles and Orange Gananche Truffles
Who doesn't love truffles? I was busy making some Oreo truffles to bring to my son in law and to friends this Sunday and I decided to switch it up and make some different flavors. The ganache truffles obviously do not have Oreos in them and they are much sweeter but the flavors turned out very good. To make the ganache just put 16 ounces of semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate into a bowl. On the stovetop, bring 3/4 cup heavy cream to just a simmer. Take the cream off the stove and pour it over the chocolate. Let it sit for just a minute or two to soften the chocolate. Stir gently until it's melted. This is where you can add any flavor extract you would like and add as much or as little as you like depending on your taste. Place it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to harden up till it can be scooped out. Scoop out and roll into balls. Place back into the refrigerator for the balls to harden. Dip into any flavor of chocolate you like. (Semi sweet, dark or milk) Drizzle white or colored chocolates over the top to decorate.
