As if we needed anymore tempting recipes for sweets, I've just remembered the existence of truffles. And how much I love them. And how easy they are to make. And then eat. My apologies in advance.

At heart, truffles are really just a wee ball of rolled chocolate ganache. But that's really only the beginning. You can make truffles infused with spices, mixed with dried fruit, dosed with bourbon, rolled in crushed candies, and a nearly infinite number of other superlative ideas.

And because they're just one bite, we can try them all. Right? Right.
