I love working with chocolate ganache, its is perfect and delicious for any occasion. If you are not a big fan of buttercream here is an easy chocolate ganache recipe for your cakes, cupcakes and tarts. The secret to get a perfect silky consistency of this chocolate ganache is to first of all, use high quality chocolate and secondly, be patient and enjoy it.
Attention.. Allow the ganache to sit at room temperature overnight.

*200g DARK CHOCOLATE, CHOPPED
*75g UNSALTED BUTTER, DICED
