About this recipe: A deliciously smooth chocolate ganache recipe using only three ingredients. Plain chocolate chips are melted over a double boiler, then beaten with soured cream and vanilla extract.
This is definitely a slightly healthier way to make ganache. The soured cream givs a slightly unusual taste that wasn't really to my liking, but the others seemed to like it. It didn't set with a glaze for me - 19 Jun 2012
I was looking for a recipe for classic ganache to top a chocolate cheesecake with and came across this recipe. Since sweetened sour cream is a classic plain cheescake topping I gave this one a try for my chocolate cheesecake. It was the PERFECT compliment to the rich cheesecake. Dense but not too heavy and sweet but refreshing in compliment to the intense chocolate of the cheesecake. EXCELLENT - thanks for a great recipe! - 13 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
used white chocolate instead and turned out great! i let it cool for a bit and used it for a filling for a carrot cake and then topped off the cake with a cream cheese icing. absolutely fabulous! definitely will be using this again! - 26 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
