Chocolate Ganache Recipe - How to Make Chocolate Ganache Easily

Chocolate Ganache is just so delicious when frosted over cakes or cupcakes..I have already shared a ganache recipe made using milk and this one is more basic one. I made this frost my beautiful decadent chocolate mud cake which is my next recipe.

I used semi sweet chocolate chips to make this and it was a bit bitter for me, so i added some honey to it to make it little sweeter. And also the addition of honey gave a nice shine to the ganache..You can use dark, milk or white chocolate for this as well..

Hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you...

Chocolate Chips - 1 1/4 cup ( I used semi sweet )

Now pour this over chocolate and let it sit for 2 to 3 mins.
