This is the first and the best ganache I've made yet. I don't think I will ever stray from this recipe.

  • Combine cream and sugar in a small saucepan and bring over medium heat. Just as mixture starts to boil, pour it over chocolate and whisk until combined and chocolate has melted. Stir in butter. Set aside to cool and thicken, at least 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Use less cream if you want it a bit thicker. This consistency is great for a cake but for cupcakes, I would use about 1/2 cup of cream instead.
