Guest Blogger: Tatertots and Jello

I had some technical difficulties with the post when I originally posted it, so I'm re-posting it for you all.  The wonderful and amazing Jen from Tatertots and Jello came by to share something yummy.  

Hi! I'm Jen from Tatertots and Jello! I am so excited to be here at Courtney's blog!! 

I would love to share one of my favorite recipes with you -- Chocolate Ganache Truffles. These are delightful to make for a Christmas Party or a New Years Eve dessert!

Chocolate Ganache Truffles

  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
  • Sprinkles


  • Chop up the Chocolate. I used my food processor. But if you don't have one, you can can chop it up with a knife. 
  • Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until simmering. Remove from the heat and pour the mixture over the melted chocolate mixture; let stand for 2 minutes. 
  • Using a rubber spatula, stir gently, starting in the middle of bowl and working in concentric circles until all chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. 

  • Using a melon baller, scoop chocolate onto a sheet pan lined with wax paper and return to the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 
  • Place the 8 ounces of chocolate into a medium mixing bowland microwave the bowl for a minute on power level 3, check it each minute to see if it's melting. 
  • Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. Use powder-free vinyl or latex gloves, if desired. 
  •  Then place the truffle in the bowl of chocolate. Use a slotted spoon and gently remove the truffle from the chocolate and gently place it on the waxed paper. Add some sprinkles to the top.
  •  Allow to set in a cool dry place for at least 1 hour; or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Serve at room temperature. 

Thanks for letting me come over and share one of my favorite recipes!!
