Or re-heat and pour over ice cream.  Or dip strawberries into it.

 

But only because I can't BATHE in it!

 

Oooo ice cream with ganache yummylicious!  Nice one.  Think I will have to give it a go.  Or even better... strawberries AND ice cream drizzled with it nom nom. 

Hadn't thought of bathing in it to be honest but if you can bathe in honey and milk then... ;)

Think that's what I'm going to do actually.  The kids will love "helping" me make them and it will make Christmas a little cheaper which is always a good thing :) 

 

Thanks to everyone for their replies and suggestions.

of course you can freeze it, but I'm having a cannabis recipe tasting party this weekend and you can be sure that i will be making some "special" truffles to try..;

 

 

before anyone gets upset. I live in a MMJ state and I'm a "verified patient. " We are trying edible making for my step-mother who has ALS. Cannabinoids are believed to slow the progression of the disease. I can't expect her to just be a guinea pig, right?

If the kids are going to help you, you can give truffles to their teachers for Christmas or Thanksgiving since that comes first :)

Put it in a big bowl, stick it in the fridge. When it's solidified a little poke a bunch of holes in it to let the calories escape. Then eat it. You can also save the time of adding the rum to it for the truffles if you just eat the ganache and swig the rum from the bottle at the same time.

 

Makes me wish I was a drinker. I'd be doing this with a bottle of Diet Dr Pepper. everyone knows that diet soda negates the calories of chocolate.

Ooooh!  I see....  THAT's how you do it?!

 

Thanks for the tip! :wink:

Since I own at least two spoons (one for each hand) I'd be having to rub it all over my hips because you know that's where its going.  But, hey, my arms be skinny from all that shovelling with the two spoons (required to avoid the popeye effect of having only one really well developed arm and a big butt).

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

I love everyone's replies! Cracking me up! I plan to make a bunch of ganache and freeze it. Can anyone suggest how long it can be kept frozen?

amaretto is wonderful too! i recently made a cake for an Italian themed party. Vanilla cake with whipped ganache filling and amaretto ganache for the outside. It was very decadent. The leftover ganache makes terrific truffles.

Hmm. Reminds me of an old On the Fastrack strip, from quite a few years ago, in which Candy, the Moat Monster, received a box of chocolates, remarked that she may as well apply them directly to her hips, and then proceeded to do so literally. (I think it was from a story arc involving her cyberspace romance with an IRS auditor.)
