About this recipe: Whipping cream and plain chocolate are all you need for this basic yet still supreme chocolate ganache! Make it thick enough to use as a chocolate filling or icing, or thin enough to drizzle over a cake as a glaze. Use good quality chocolate, and get ganaching!


Serves: 16 

  • 475ml whipping cream
  • 570g plain cooking chocolate

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in a large stainless steel bowl.
  2. In a large, high-sided saucepan heat cream over medium high heat, stirring frequently, until it starts to boil. At this point, the cream will want to boil over, so keep an eye on it! Immediately remove from heat and pour over chopped chocolate.
  3. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Cool completely and then store in refrigerator. Ganache can be reheated in a stainless steel bowl over hot, but not boiling, water.
