Chocolate Ganache

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Total Time: 5m


  • 4 oz Chocolate, 66%+ cacao, chopped into chunks
  • 1/2 c Heavy whipping cream


  1. Put the chocolate in a heat-safe bowl. Pour the heavy whipping cream into a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Too long and it will boil over.
  2. Pour the warm cream over the chocolate and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Start whisking slowly in one direction from the middle of the bowl until the mixture is combined and smooth.
  3. Let the ganache cool for at least 15 minutes before using on a dessert. Let cool further to become more solid.
