It sounded fancy sounding, I guess! Thanks to my friend Rebecca at Sugar & Soul though, I have seen the error of my ways and I am now Chocolate Ganache obsessed!

Chocolate Ganache
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 c half and half
  • 8 oz chopped baking chocolate, semi sweet
Instructions
  1. Heat heavy cream in a sauce pan until it begins to simmer.
  2. While the cream is heating, chop up your baking chocolate and place in a small glass bowl.
  3. When the cream is heated, pour it over the chocolate. Then, let it set for two minutes without stirring or mixing. Just leave it alone!
  4. After it sets for two minutes, beat with a whisk until a rich chocolate ganache forms.
  5. Ganache thickens the longer it stands. If using to dip or as a glaze, do it soon after whisking. If you are spreading, you will want to let it thicken a bit.
