Chocolate Ganache

This is my “go-to” ganache recipe.  I usually don’t have set measurements and go by feel.  And, it also depends on how I’m using it and what consistency I need. So, this is my best attempt at giving you measurements:

Chocolate Ganache
  • 1/2 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Pour chips into a small heat proof bowl. Heat the butter and whipping cream in a small saucepan until it bubbles on the sides. Pour the whipping cream into the bowl of chocolate chips and let set for 1 minute. Stir until creamy and ready to drizzle or spread.

(Sometimes I do not even use butter, and only the whipping cream.)

  1. This recipe is great, I’m making for my son’s first birthday pool party. I used a cup to cut the dough into circles because my rectangles were not looking good. I then used ice cream in pints and just cut right through the pint to make ice cream discs. Tip: cool the ganache before adding ice cream! I neglected this step on the first one and had a drippy mess! I’m also going to give the sandwiches a roll in some chocolate sprinkles to dazzle up the sides. Thanks for sharing!
