Chocolate ganache is delicious any way you have it-as a velvety glaze over a cake, as those melt-in-your-mouth truffles, or as a fluffy frosting piled high on your cupcakes.  This recipe is as simple as it can get. All you need is a good block of chocolate and heavy cream in equal amounts.

 

 

The classic chocolate ganache is made with dark or bittersweet chocolate. However, if you are feeling a little adventurous, you can experiment with milk chocolate or white chocolate!

If the ganache is a little lumpy, gently reheat it over a double boiler until the chocolate is completely melted. At this point, you can use this as a glaze to pour over your cakes.
