Use this recipe when making our Luscious Chocolate Cake.
Chop chocolate finely using a serrated knife, and place in a large heat-proof bowl.
Bring cream to a boil over medium-high heat; pour directly over chopped chocolate. Allow to sit 10 minutes; use a rubber spatula to gently stir chocolate and cream until combined. Allow to sit at room temperature until just thickened, about 15 minutes.
This ganache gets thicker as it sits. You want it pourable but thick enough to fully coat the cake.
