easy recipe for chocolate ganache

In desserts, recipes on July 21, 2012 at 7:42 am

This is a very easy recipe for making chocolate ganache. Experiment with different chocolates to discover which you prefer. I love using Lindt Excellence Chili dark chocolate Bar when I make this recipe, but Lindt Excellence 85% works well also. The recipe is easily halved or quartered, depending on how much you need, and how much chocolate you have. Each Lindt bar is 100g. The full recipe calls for 500g chocolate, and 500ml cream. In the US, 1 quart of cream is 946ml, and 1 pint (the cute little boxes of cream) are 473ml.

After making, pour into a pyrex baking dish and chill. Cut into thin slices to serve as a rich dessert. Or store the chocolate ganache in a jar in the fridge for up to two weeks. When you’re ready to serve it, gently warm in a pot or microwave to soften.
