What is Chocolate Ganache?

A basic chocolate ganache is made by heating up cream and pouring it over chocolate. The heat from the cream melts the chocolate. The two ingredients are then stirred until smooth. Sometimes other flavorings are added. Butter or corn syrup can also be added to make the ganache extra shiny. 

Make frosting, drips and truffles using a single recipe:

Depending on which chocolate ganache recipe you are following, you might use more chocolate than cream for a thicker chocolate ganache. Equal parts chocolate and cream (1:1 ratio) are typically used for very soft frostings, chocolate drip or for a glaze. A 2:1 ratio (twice as much chocolate as cream) is typically used for making truffles or a stiff chocolate ganache frosting. White chocolate ganache is usually made with a 3:1 ratio of chocolate. The temperature of your chocolate ganache also matters. When your chocolate ganache is first made and still warm, it is very liquid. This is the ideal format for glazing, making drip cakes or for using on ice cream. 

But here I used 1:1 ratio for making different chocolate recipes, based on the temperature.

Ganache is a simple mixture of melted chocolate and cream. Because it contains heavy cream, it can be whipped into a light and fluffy texture.

After ganache is whipped into a frosting, it has the texture and flavor of a very rich chocolate whipped cream.This makes a great alternative to buttercream frosting.

A basic chocolate ganache is made by heating up cream and pouring it over chocolate. The heat from the cream melts the chocolate. Whisk the mixture until smooth, chocolate ganache is ready. Cool it up for 1 to 2 hours. Chocolate Fudge is ready now. Using a mixer whip the mixture at medium speed until fluffy and forms medium-stiff peaks, about 2 minutes.
