Original recipe of the week: Chocolate ganache for dummies
Often seen as an indulgent treat or a complex concoction, chocolate ganache is actually a simple and elegant way to spruce up any dessert or tea-time delicacy. Even for those not quite so gifted in the kitchen…
Follow my three step plan for a quick and easy ganache that will keep you at the top of the party invitation list for sure!
What you will need:
200g chocolate (milk, dark or white – your choice)
150g double cream
1 pinch of salt
What you need to do:
- Break the chocolate up into small pieces and place into a microwaveable bowl. Heat in the microwave on 800W for 3-4 mins or until melted (make sure to keep checking so it doesn’t burn).
- When melted pour in the double cream a little at a time and mix to combine.
- Season with salt to taste and place in the fridge to set. And voilà! A yummy chocolate ganache to use however you please. In just three easy steps.
