Chocolate Ganache can be used as a glaze, icing, topping, frosting or filling and is made with just 2 ingredients – chocolate and cream.

For the best results, use a high-quality chocolate and a heavy cream such as whipping cream.

The measurements are really simple – for every 1 oz in weight of chocolate you need 1 oz of cream in volume.
