Chocolate Ganache

Chocolate Ganache


Ahh, the versatile chocolate ganache! This classic staple in the pastry work has been around forever and it’s not going away anytime soon! Make this garnish for any cake is quite simple and it adds a certain elegance and beauty to any cake, pastry or dessert.

Today, I’m sharing a simple recipe for making chocolate glaze and fluffy chocolate cream filling! Smooth and silky chocolate glaze ganache is an elegant and easy finish to any cake, giving the cake eye-catching style! And fluffy ganache filling is perfect to fill cakes, tarts or even macarons! When making the chocolate filling, take care not to overmix, as this can cause the fats in the chocolate and cream to separate.

This recipe calls for just 2 ingredients so anyone can make it! That’s right – just two ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen right now! I recommend using high-quality baking chocolate chips to achieve an ideal glaze. I use Ghirardelli chips for most of my baking.

I love using this set of nesting glass mixing bowls for food prep.
I have at least 5 of these Pyrex measuring cups!
These disposable pastry bags are a huge time saver and work so well for frosting and ganache.
My handy, handheld KitchenAid mixer is great for when I don’t want to use my large mixer.
