Easy Ganache

Hello and WELCOME to my new subscribers!  It is so good to see you all, it has been a little but but I know you all understand "life".  It is all going a million miles an hour and I love it, mostly!

I wanted to share my easy ganache recipe.  It really is a basic that I should have shared long, long ago.  It is the glorious ingredient in so many things and it is the crowning glory of so many more!

I will show you in the video, how to use my ganache 3 ways.  Glazed topping, whipped frosting, and truffles!

You can double or triple this recipe depending on what you are doing and how much you need.   I ALWAYS use semi sweet chocolate chips.  Here we go!

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

In a bowl, place your chips.  Then, either on your stove top or in the microwave, scald your heavy cream.  That means you need it to be bubbling around the outside but not boiling.  Pour it carefully over the chips, make sure they are all submerged and wait 2 minutes.  Let the heat of the cream work and then take a whisk and start mixing slowly.  You aren't looking to incorporate air, just mix the chocolate and cream together.  When it is smooth, add your vanilla.  Now.....

You can immediate dip cupcakes, or donuts, eclairs, cream puffs, etc in the ganache after letting it set about 5 to 10 more minutes.  

You can let it cool in the fridge, like over night.  Take a hand mixer to it and whip it.  You can see it changing color to a lighter brown as air incorporates and it basically transforms to the most decadent silky chocolate whipped cream you have ever been blessed enough to indulge in!  Pipe it on or spread it between cake layers, frost cakes, cupcakes, eat it with a spoon.  I would NEVER do that, but...I mean I have done it and highly recommend it!

Last of my choices is truffles.  Let it get really solid, use a small cookie scoop or spoon, roll into balls and then roll in anything...crushed chocolate candies, nuts, coconut, cocoa, powdered sugar, maybe stick a surprise in the center!
