New Ganache Recipe
1 stick of cinnamon
5-10 whole cloves
dash of salt 
Heavy Cream
60% Chocolate

Directions to make the ganache:
Bring cream to a boil with the cinnamon, cloves, and salt in the pot.  Once it boils, immediately take it off the heat and let it sit for 30 min – 3 hrs.  Then melt the chocolate & re-boil the cream.  Add the cream to the chocolate & stir slowly.

From there, you can use the ganache however you’d like.  We rolled them then dipped them in tempered chocolate.  You could also use this ganache as a filling, use molds and make molded truffle (bon bon’s)…etc.
