Easy chocolate ganacha for cakes, cupcakes and dippable desserts



  • 4 oz semi sweet chocolate (by weight)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. First, warm the cream in a saucepan over medium heat until simmering. While it’s heating, chop the chocolate into small pieces Iif you’re using bars or bricks) and place in a glass bowl. When the cream is heated, pour it over the chopped chocolate and stir until the chocolate it melted and the mixture is smooth. Allow to cool and thicken. {Note: you can also allow this to completely cool and whip it to use as a filling or frosting for piping.} I stuck mine in the frig for about 10 minutes to speed up the process!
  2. I’ve also added in 1/4 cup of corn syrup (for added shininess) and vanilla (for extra flavor) but these are not necessary!
