After eating the peach tart with a nut-date crust that Julie made for us in Tofino, I needed to play in the kitchen. I’ve been looking for a snack for Lucy after her afternoon swim, something with protein, something slightly sweet without refined sugars, and something portable. The crust on that tart took so little time to make that I thought about rolling it into balls.
The balls themselves are easy to make and plenty good. Those are Lucy’s favorites. But Danny? He wanted chocolate ganache. Ganache sounds fancy, doesn’t it? Did you know that all you need to do to make chocolate ganache is combine chopped chocolate and hot coconut milk and stir? Ay goodness.
We used dark chocolate, the only kind I eat, with an 80% cocoa content. When Lucy took a bite, she immediately said, “You might want to add a little sugar to that.” Me? I like the bitterness, the darkness of these, and the tiny amount of added sugar. But if you want to give these to your kids, you might want to use a slightly less-dark chocolate. These would also make great bars. And a tart crust.
