Chocolate Ganache

5 minute ganache is incredibly easy to whip up, perfect for topping anything!


Chocolate ganache is my latest obsession. I pour it over ice cream, cake, brownies, and basically anything sweet I have in the house. It only takes 5 minutes so it’s a win win all around.


And I have these cute little jars so I naturally filled them up and gave them to friends and neighbors. I hope they enjoy it as much as I do.

I used bittersweet chocolate for this particular batch because I don’t like milk chocolate, and bittersweet is what I had on hand. But you can change it to milk or semisweet chocolate.

I used this to top a flourless chocolate cake, it was amazing.
