This chocolate ganache recipe is so easy. Pour hot cream over chocolate and whisk! Depending on the temperature, you can make frosting, drips or even truffles. Ganache is a chocolate dessert staple!
*Note* using a scale is recommended for accuracy and to ensure your ganache turns out.
Weigh out your chocolate in a heat proof bowl
Heat cream in a sauce pan until steam starts to rise from the surface but isn't boiling yet.
Pour hot cream over the chocolate, push the chocolate down so that it's all under the surface of the cream and let it set for 5 minutes.
Add salt and vanilla and whisk everything together until it's smooth. If any lumps remain, put the mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds and whisk again.
If you have an immersion blender you can use it to remove any remaining lumps as well for a super cream ganache
Ganache can be kept in the refrigerator for 1 week for frozen for up to 6 months.
