Smooth Chocolate Ganache
Chocolate ganache is made with melted chocolate and heavy cream, and for a very smooth ganache, it's important to blend them together carefully.
- Serves: 8 persons
- 8oz dark chocolate (chopped)
- ¾cup heavy cream
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Melt chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat.
Step 3Heat cream in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat until it just comes to a boil, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn't scorch.
Step 4Pour about a quarter of the hot cream into melted chocolate and stir until completely incorporated.
Step 5Repeat until all the cream is mixed in and ganache is shiny and smooth. If you are adding other flavoring ingredients, such as brandy , cognac or vanilla extract, stir it in now.
