Chocolate Ganache Glaze

chocolate-ganacheGanache is a glaze, icing, sauce, or filling for pastries made from chocolate and cream.
It is made by heating cream, then pouring it over chopped chocolate of any kind. The mixture is stirred or blended until smooth, with liqueurs or extracts added if desired.

It is my personal go to for chocolate truffles. The hard shell molded kind that are so pretty to give as gifts for valentines day or serve up to shower guests. I have even made them as favors in tiny boxes for special dinner parties.

This recipe is a variation of traditional ganache that I use for frosting decadent brownies or pour over a single chocolate layer cake.
