Ganache Chocolate Truffles
Candy Recipes from Rebecca Kolls
When you've got the kids home for the holidays you have to keep them entertained.
Good Morning America's Rebecca Kolls suggests some do-it-yourself candy recipes.
Place the finely chopped chocolate in a heat resistant glass bowl.
In a small saucepan bring the cream to a boil.
Add the boiled cream to the chocolate in the bowl. Stir until completely dissolved. Then stir in the softened butter, and the vanilla extract. Place plastic wrap loosely against the ganache mixture and let cool completely.
Place the ganache in a pastry bag with a 1/2-inch tip. Bag out 1/2-inch balls onto a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Put into refrigerator and let cool until firm.
Roll into round balls and dip into powdered cocoa or chopped nuts.
