Chocolate Ganache

A simple, two-ingredient chocolate ganache that comes together quickly and is amazing as a glaze, frosting, or even a dip for fruit! Seriously impressive with minimal effort! Recipe adapted from Zoe Bakes.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 8 oz Chopped dark chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 8 oz Heavy cream


  1. In a saucepan, heat the cream on medium, stirring occasionally, until it reaches a simmer. 

  2. Remove from heat and add the chocolate. Let sit for about 5 minutes. 

  3. Whisk until all the chocolate has melted into the cream and it's ready to use!

Recipe Notes

The ganache will thicken as it cools, so you can use it warm to glaze a cake or let it sit and cool longer until it gets stiff enough to frost cupcakes or use as a dip. 

If you'd like whipped ganache, chill it then beat until you reach stiff peaks.
