One of the most bizarre "truffle" recipes I have seen. Not a true ganache by any stretch of the imagination but I posted it incase someone was looking for something different as a chocolate desert.

I remember reading this last year and I am now actually thinking of making these. But after reading the ingredients list and observing that peppermint essence can be substituted for vanilla and even orange, I am becoming more skeptical about this recipe. Any thoughts on this?

Might work, only what kind of olives? The author says that there was "a bowl of fat, black Kalamata olives. I washed the salt out of them.." - so I would imagine it has to be olives in brine, not a marinated variety. Although the recipe truffles are mostly dates anyway, low on cocoa as well!
Ooh wow that *is* interesting. Sounds a little bit like a tapenade that I made a while back with olives, figs and cocoa; have to give it a try.
On a related note I've always thought that black olives in brine (but with the salt not washed out) go really well with white chocolate. Get a cocktail stick and stick away!
