DC Cupcakes: Three-minute ganache

Georgetown Cupcake - Chocolate Ganache

Georgetown Cupcake - Chocolate Ganache

I love chocolate ganache on cake, its kind of fudgy in texture but really chocolatey!  A lovely alternative to buttercream and nice with any cake that I can imagine.

Check out this video with Sophie and Katherine on how to make chocolate ganache in 3 minutes: http://tlc.discovery.com/videos/dc-cupcakes-three-minute-ganache.html

You will need:

2 cups of dark chocolate chips

1 cup/240ml double cream

(I personally am a secret fan of the US ‘cup’ method as its less effort than weighing although for instance 1 cup of icing sugar will weigh less than 1 cup of chocolate chips- I think!)

Here’s some I made!
