Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings: 2 & 1/2 cups (approx.)


  • 8 ounces semi-sweet Baker's or couverture chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 & 1/4 cups heavy cream


  • In a medium sized, heat safe bowl, combine chocolate and heavy cream. Heat the mixture in your microwave or over a bain-marie until melted.
    For the microwave, heat on full power for 30 seconds. Take the bowl out and give it a stir. Continue heating in 10 second intervals, pausing after each interval to stir, until the chocolate is fully melted and you have a smooth mixture.
    For the bain-marie, fill a pot with 1 inch of water. Bring the water up to a very gentle simmer and place your bowl of chocolate/cream over the pot. Make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water! Heat low and slow, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted and you have a smooth mixture.
  • Set the ganache aside to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, cover and chill in the fridge until cold (about 1 hour).
  • Pour your ganache into a large bowl. Beat the ganache using an electric mixer (or by hand if you want a serious workout!) until light and fluffy.
