    How to make Chocolate Ganache

    • On medium to high heat, pour heavy cream in a saucepan and stir until it comes to a simmer.
    • Pour the chocolate and stir until it melts and mixes well with cream.
    • Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes.
    • Add butter and stir until a smooth consistency is formed.

    Tip:

    Whenever you are using chocolate ganache, always ensure that it is just warm enough to be easily poured. If the ganache starts to become stiff, use the double-boiler technique to melt the ganache; fill a saucepan with water and bring to boil. Placea bowl of ganache over boiling water and turn the flame to simmer. Stir as the chocolate melts from the heat of the steam and warms through.
