Holidays and truffles go hand in hand. Assorted truffles are the perfect party favor, present, or desert for your dorm mates! Most truffles have a creamy ganache center, and are dipped in a hard layer of chocolate casing, which can be decorated however you choose. Ganache is made by heating heavy cream, and stirring it into finely chopped milk or dark chocolate. The ganache is cooled, then formed into balls and dipped in pure melted chocolate. This recipe is time consuming, but fun. It's a great study break for you and your friends on a holiday night!
