Chocolate Ganache III

This smooth satin chocolate frosting will bring a touch of elegance to even the most basic cake. A simple garnish such as fresh fruit, mint leaves or edible flowers adds the finishing touch.

Yield

10 servings

Ingredients

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

In a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips with cream over low heat. Remove from the heat. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally.

For a pourable ganache, cool until mixture reaches 85°F to 90°F (29°C to 32°C) and is slightly thickened, about 40 minutes. Pour over cake, allowing some to flow down the edges to completely coat. Spread ganache with a spatula if necessary to evenly coat, working quickly before it thickens. Chill until set.

For spreadable ganache, chill until mixture reaches a spreadable consistency. Spread over cake. Chill until set.
