Chocolate Ganache- Simple and Delicious!

Ezekiel licking the bowl.

I love to bake!  A couple of weeks ago my dad retired from his job and we celebrated with a chocolate almond fudge cake- SO SO good.  To make it even better I topped it with the most amazingly simple chocolate ganache.


1/2 C heavy cream
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips


  • Cook the heavy cream and chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water
  • Stir occasionally until smooth
  • Remove from heat
  • Allow to set when you spread it over what it is you are using it for

The thing I love about this ganache is that you can add so many things to it- instant coffee, extracts, etc.-  and you can put it on anything- cakes, cupcakes, cookies…you can let your imagination take it away.  It is so good!
