White- or Dark-Chocolate Ganache

  • Yield: Makes about 1 3/4 cups

Source: Martha Stewart Living Television

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces good quality white or dark chocolate
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

Directions

  1. Make an ice-water bath; set aside. Using a sharp, heavy serrated knife or a chocolate chopper, finely chop the chocolate. It's important to chop it finely so that it melts quickly. Transfer to a medium bowl.

  2. Bring heavy cream just to a boil, and pour over chopped chocolate. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth.

  3. Place the bowl over ice-water bath, and use a wooden spoon to stir the mixture vigorously until it reaches the desired thickness or consistency, about 5 minutes.
