Instructions Checklist

  • Place chocolate-cream mixture in the freezer until ganache is cold and starting to thicken, stirring every 5 minutes, about 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Spoon ganache into a resealable plastic bag and refrigerate until completely cooled, 15 to 30 minutes.

  • Cut a corner from the plastic bag and pipe ganache.

Cook's Note:

Do not worry if mixture remains thin until cool. It will thicken. Some freezers will take longer.

did not set up. Even after adding muchmore chocolate it never got stiffer than cake frosting. I let it freeze and it got stiffer but anything less than frozen and it reverted to a soft frosting level consistency. I was just using it as a glaze for a Bundt cake and it was a bit too thin for it. Read More

Good taste and will make a great icing. I would add more milk to use it as a drizzle. Read More

This was delicious but it just did not set up for me. I'm still giving this 4 stars because I may have (possibly) added too much cream while being distracted by the little ones but I'm not sure if I did or not lol so I am not going to fault the recipe. This seems like a pretty standard recipe for ganache so it should work fine that's why I think I may have messed up. It still worked out for me because I just used it as an ice cream topping for the kids and they LOVED it (it really is tasty)! I promise I will try this again and report back. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
