Why I Love This Recipe

If you use these proportions your semi sweet ganache pipes beautifully and has texture of truffles, but must refrigerate for at least 1 hour before piping.

Ingredients You'll Need

8 oz heavy whipping cream
1 tbls butter (optional but makes it stay really shiny even after refrigerating)
1 oz granulated sugar
12 oz chocolate


Break chocolate into 1/2 oz pieces and place in stainless steel bowl

Heat cream, butter and sugar to boiling. Pour over chocolate and let stand 5 minutes. Stir from center out until smooth. After refrigerating 1 hour then fill your piping bag

Or use to ice your cake by pouring or spreading (allow to cool to room temp first)

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Good morning Tracy Have you ever added flavoring to the ganache to use it as a filling for molding chocolates? If so, about how much - I am thinking kahlua, chambord etc etc.
