The Minimalist makes ganache and truffles + Houston Chronicle Recipes

This week, the Minimalist makes chocolate ganache and then turns his ganache into truffles.

I’ve made truffles before. It’s pretty easy, if messy. And delicious delicious delicious.

The Houston Chronicle also recently did a feature on candy-making. It’s not nearly as well laid out or photographed as the Times, and the pop-up ads are obnoxious. But there are several recipes that sound tasty.
