I use this as my complete guide for making homemade chocolate ganache, and so can you! There are just 2 ingredients and the uses of this ganache are endless. It can be used not only on cakes and cupcakes but can also be refrigerated to be a dip, ice cream, and crepe topping, maybe even a chocolate frosting or a filling.
Chocolate ganache is stirred until silky and smooth made with chocolate and cream in a water bath. It’s not only quick and easy but tastes luxuriously good.
2 Ingredients in Chocolate Ganache
- Chocolate: I recommend that you use semi-sweet chocolate chips, but I have found that other types of work just as well. If you don’t have chocolate chips, you can also chop a bar of chocolate. You can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. It really depends on your taste buds.
- Heavy Whipping Cream: The ganache won’t set properly if you use anything else other than the heavy whipping cream.
Steps for an Easy Ganache recipe
