Ingredients

  • 8 ounces SCHARFFEN BERGER 62% Cacao Semisweet Chocolate
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons sweet butter

Directions

  • Heat the chocolate, cream, and butter in the top of a double boiler. Stir gently until the mixture is completely melted and smooth.
  • Use lukewarm as a pourable glaze or let stand until thick enough to spread like frosting.
  • If using as ganache, chill in refrigerator to desired consistency.
  • May be reheated to soften. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
  • Makes a striking coating with rich chocolate taste.

Notes

A ganache is an emulsification of chocolate and any water-based liquid—cream, milk, half-and-half, even soy milk. Ganache can be thick or airy, infused with many different flavors, and/or mixed with butter. In what is perhaps its most familiar form, ganache is the center of a truffle.
