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.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1-1/4 cups milk, semisweet, or bittersweet chocolate chips (I used bittersweet)
- In a medium saucepan bring cream to a heavy simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally so it doesn’t burn.
- Pull of heat. Add chocolate chips, making sure they are all submerged in the cream. DO NOT STIR. Wait 2 minutes and then stir until smooth.
- Use immediately by topping cakes, ice cream, or brownies, or store In a jar or container for up to 1-1/2 weeks in the fridge. To reheat microwave it. Small amounts 5-10 seconds, larger amounts up to 25 seconds. Makes about 1-3/4 cups.
