A rich, smooth mixture of melted chocolate and cream, ganache is often used to glaze cakes, pastries and cookies. It makes a luscious filling for macaroons.


  • 6 oz. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate,
     finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


In a heatproof bowl, combine the chocolate and butter.

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the cream just to a boil. Remove from the heat and immediately pour the cream over the chocolate and butter. Using a handheld whisk, stir the mixture until the chocolate and butter melt and are smooth. Let cool until spreadable.
Makes about 1 1/3 cups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and easy chocolate ganache This is a great and easy, quick chocolate ganache. I have made it with good chocolate that I have chopped up and also with Nestle's toll house semi-sweet chocolate chips. Works well with both and the taste is great too. (the chips do melt well into the hot cream)
