  • 1/2 cup Cream
  • 2 tbs Corn Syrup
  • 6 oz Chocolate See notes


  • Gather your ingredients. Like my new food scale? 😉
  • Heat the cream and corn syrup and mix it until simmering.
  • Pour the cream into a bowl or pouring cup containing the chocolate.
  • Cover and let sit for 5 minutes. This lets the chocolate heat up.
  • Whisk well.
  • Once smooth and well mixed, your ganache is ready to be used!


  • You can try different kinds of chocolate for different flavor profiles.  In this instance I used 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate.  Semi sweet and other forms work great too!
