Remember when I made Fluffy Snickerdoodles?
And there was actually no chocolate! In or on top! And they were insanely addicting! Well, I had intended to do the same with these snickerdoodle muffins, but then the ganache thing happened.
Not just any ganache, Kahlua Chocolate Ganache. See I was having a grand old-time on this snowy day (Finally! I live in the mountains of Colorado where snow is supposed to be everywhere by now, but we have seen nothing but sun and blue skies since November 1st! So, the snowfall was happily welcomed!) singing along to my classic Christmas music with Jingle (the family Elf on the Shelf) when I remember about my failed attempt at truffles. Todays post was originally going to be truffles, but the filling never firmed up, it just stayed all gooey and delicious. Truffle fail. So I did it. I put the truffle ganache in my snickerdoodle muffins.
I mean the ganache has Kahlua and chocolate and cream. When the thought crossed my mind there was no turning back . I had to make it happen. It just had to.
I do not know why I do these things and sometimes I really wish I didn’t. But this is not one of those times. These are pure Christmas magic.
Whether you choose to add the ganache or not (I highly recommend adding) these are some seriously good muffins.
I guess this is what happens when you write a food blog.
