Chop the Chocolate

Chop the Chocolate

Assemble the traditional ganache ingredients:
  • 12 oz semisweet chocolate
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Finely chop 12 oz of semisweet chocolate.

Measure the Cream

Measure out 2/3 cup heavy cream.

Heat the Cream

Bring the cream to a boil. Remove from heat immediately.

Add the Chocolate

Add the chopped chocolate and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and begin to whisk.

Start Mixing

The mixture will be very lumpy.

Continue Stirring

As you continue to whisk, the mixture will become darker and smoother.

Almost Done Stirring

The mixture will begin to look like melted chocolate and be slightly textured. Don’t stop whisking – the ganache isn’t done yet.

A Good Consistency

The ganache will be completely smooth when it is done.

This is the finished product: creamy, smooth ganache.

Allow the ganache to cool slightly before pouring over a cake or chill it for Chocolate Truffles.
