Say yes to Deliciousness: Ganache can be used as a glaze for a cake or pastries, dip for fresh strawberries or you can roll into truffles.
Servings: 8 cups
- Place chocolate in a 2 qt. bowl; set aside.
- In a sauce pan, bring cream to a simmer, remove from heat.
- Pour cream over chocolate in bowl.
- Whisk until smooth.
For dipping: Dip in your favorite treat (cookies, pretzels, graham crackers) and allow to dry on wax paper. If the ganache gets too thick for dipping, reheat in a double boiler. 1 part chocolate to 1 part cream
For pouring: Pour over a filled layer cake – the ganache will need to be loose enough to flow but thickened enough to stay on the cake. 1 part chocolate to 2 parts cream
For truffles: Chill ganache in refrigerator until it begins to firm up, scoop with a 1oz round scoop, form small ball, and roll in coco powder or sprinkles. 2 parts chocolate to 1 part cream
