Chef Dolder’s no-fail chocolate ganache recipe

Equal parts, example: 1 pint heavy cream and 16 ounces of good chocolate, such as Callebaut or Scharffen Berger

Chop up chocolate

Bring cream just under a boil

Pour heated heavy cream over chocolate.

Stir with a stick blender (makes a nice emulsion)

Coat something with the ganache or make truffles from it, or put in hot coco or eat a spoonful!
