Heat cream in a small saucepan over medium until steaming, about 5 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, combine semisweet and bittersweet chocolate with butter in a medium bowl. Pour hot cream over chocolate and let stand for 1 minute. Stir until melted and smooth. Stir in vanilla and salt. Pour into a shallow dish, such as a pie plate, cover, and refrigerate until ganache is scoopable, about 30 minutes. 3. Place strawberries in a mini food processor and pulse until finely chopped but not powdered, about eight 1-second pulses. Place in a small bowl. 4. Place mints in a zip-top bag and whack with a mallet about 5 times until coarsely crushed. Transfer to a separate small bowl. Place cocoa powder and powdered peanut butter in small bowls. 5. Scoop tablespoonfuls of ganache and roll into balls; your hands will warm up the ganache if it got too firm. Place on a parchment-lined plate. 6. Roll 3 truffles in each coating, pressing to adhere. Chill until ready to serve. #valentinesday #chocolatetruffles #valentine Subscribe to Allrecipes @"add_user=allrecipes Allrecipes Magazine is now available!
