Chocolate Ganache

Simple and Delicious.  Need I say more!

Chocolate Ganache

ganache 002

5 ounces bittersweet chocolate (you can use chocolate chips)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or whatever extract you desire)

1.  Put chopped chocolate in small mixing bowl.
2.  Heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Bring just to a boil and remove from heat. (Or you can put in microwave for 30 second intervals.  It takes 60 to 90 seconds to get hot enough)
3.  Pour cream over chocolate and whisk until smooth. Add vanilla extract (or extract of your choice) and your done.

This is a thin frosting.  It is more like a glaze. I drizzled over my Snicker Cheesecake, Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt cake and Gingerbread Bundt cake.

I am sure you could think of many things to do with this rich, chocolate deliciousness. Like ice cream is a start!

Enjoy!!  🙂
