Chocolate Ganache Tutorial!

Alright... first tutorial of the year.... or ever actually... not sure I've ever done one! Anyway... On to the tutorial!

Here are the things you need:

8 Ounces Semi Sweet Chocolate
2/3 Cup Cream
2 Tbsp Butter

Start with your 8 oz of chocolate....
 Chop the chocolate finely and put it in a heat proof bowl. (I use my measuring cup... works like a charm!)

 Next heat the cream on medium until it begins to simmer... be careful to not over cook the cream, it will not taste good and the pot will be almost impossible to clean!


Once the cream is heated, pour it over the chopped chocolate. Let the cream/chocolate mixture sit for one full minute.
 After a minute stir the chocolate and cream until all the chocolate melts. (If you still have some chocolate chunks heat it in the microwave for a couple seconds but watch it closely!)

Next add you butter and stir to combine...

Yum... licking the spoon is the best part!
 Let the ganache stand until thick enough to pipe through a piping bag, or to spreadable consistency, depending on what you are using the ganache for! If you need to speed up the thickening pop the ganache in the fridge... stirring it every 10 mins.
 I was using this batch of ganache to fill cupcakes. A nice surprise for the cupcake - eater!

Ganache is a great for pretty much anything you need it for! It is a good cake topping, a good filling, or a good base for fondant!

Stay tuned for St. Patrick's Day cupcakes!
Happy Baking!

  11. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
