Preparation 5m Total Time


  • 8 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 8 ounces whipping cream


  1. Chop the chocolate and place it in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat cream in a saucepan over medium-low heat until the mixture begins to steam. Do not simmer or boil.
  3. Pour the warm cream over chopped chocolate in a bowl. Stir gently to cover all the chocolate. Let it sit for 5 minutes, melting the chocolate slowly. 
  4. Whisk or stir the cream and chocolate together gently until it's combined into a smooth ganache. Flavor it if you'd like (see below), or add a bit of corn syrup for extra shine.
