  • 8 oz good quality semi sweet chocolate such as ghiradelli
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream


  • Break chocolate into small pieces. The smaller you break or cut the chocolate, the quicker it will melt.
  • Microwave cream until very hot, about 1 minute. Pour cream over chocolate and let stand 5 minutes to completely melt.
  • Stir chocolate and cream together to create a completely smooth ganache. Use as desired.


If using as a glaze for a cake, consider increasing the heavy cream to 3/4-1 cup.
