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!
