Spicy Chipotle Chocolate Ganache Truffles - a spicy smoky sweet chocolate treat! These truffles are so easy to make, and are equally impressive for any event! Moustaches or not!
Several years ago, I was driving on the FREEWAY. An SUV passed by me, and the kid in the back seat threw something out the window. It hit my windshield, made me swerve, scared the pants off me, really. I caught up with the guy, who pulled over. I pulled over in front of their car, GOT OUT of my car (yep, on the freeway) and marched on back there, yelling WHAT WAS THAT?? DO YOU REALIZE I COULD HAVE CRASHED??
He was VERY apologetic, his son would be punished, etcetera and so on. I looked down to see his license plate, didn't have a front one. I started walking to the back of his car to see his license plate, he put it in reverse to keep me from seeing it. I stopped and looked at him, we had a stare-down for quite a while, I started walking again, he reversed again. Then I realized I was standing on a busy freeway. (My mom hates this story).
I got back in my car, realizing he would not leave until I did. I started driving, he started driving (at this point I didn't even want his license plate, it was the principle... I suppose I am a bit competitive). I slowed down, he would not pass me. I pulled off at the next exit, he pulled over again! I gave up and drove off.
Since I had taken an exit I was not planning to, I drove the back way home, through Lake Oswego proper. As I was driving through town, guess which car I see parked in the video store parking lot?! Yep.
I flipped a u-turn, parked and wrote. down. his. license. plate. number.
I waited until they saw me, held up the piece of paper, waved and drove off.
Why am I telling you a story that clearly shows my immaturity?
That guy had a moustache that looked like this - like the guy on the Monopoly game.
I saw these moustache candy molds and had to have them. Aren't they so fun?

I love the spicy kick in these chocolate moustaches! This is so party-perfect!
That is such a great story! You are one brave woman. I'm not sure I would have done the same, but kudos to you for having the gumption to stand up for yourself. And even better, you made a fabulous dessert from that story. Love it!

That story is hilarious! What a jerk! Your truffles sound amazing...I love the mustaches!
Jessica @ TwoGreenPeas says
This sounds SO good! I cannot resist anything where chocolate and spice are paired together. Do you know where I can find chipotle peppers in adobo in Canada?
Kristina Sloggett says
hmm, I am not entirely sure Jessica - they are in small cans, usually in the ethnic / Mexican section of a regular grocery store. they are very common here, didn't think they may not be in Canada? perhaps an International grocery, if you have one nearby? good luck in finding them!
