If you love chocolate, you will love this easy chocolate ganache recipe. There are so many uses for this recipe. You can use it for fruit, frosting, and fillings also.
I make this several times a month and put some in the freezer. You can leave it at room temperature for a few days or refrigerate for a few weeks.
You can also make truffles from the ganache by adding flavorings.
Easy Chocolate Ganache Recipe
1 2/3 cup heavy cream
(1 stick of butter) optional
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or flavoring of your choice
A dash my favorite salt
Chop your chocolate into fine pieces and place in a glass bowl or use a food processor (if you are using a processor, just continue to place everything inside after heating cream.)
In a heavy saucepan bring cream to a boil.
Pour cream over chocolate and whisk to melt the chocolate.
Add flavoring. Put in a glass bowl and let cool to room temperature. This may take a few hours.
You can refrigerate covered for several weeks and heat up or let stand at room temperature to use.

I generally like to ganache my cupcakes then you can frost them. The ganache keeps them from drying out too soon. You can also add flavors to this recipe or use a good quality white chocolate.
