Chocolate ganache is incredibly easy to make and is used in so many desserts. It’s essentially melted chocolate with cream and depending on how you’re going to use it, it can be a thicker or thinner consistency. This particular recipe is perfect for dunking churros into!

  • 8 oz of high quality semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream


First, chop up chocolate if using a block of chocolate.  Set up a double-boiler by placing a bowl on top of a pot filled with about 2 inches of water so that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.  Bring the water to a simmer and fill the bowl with chocolate and cream.

Slowly as the chocolate melts stir the chocolate and cream together. The consistency will be thick but runny. Remove off the heat as soon as it is melted and the cream incorporated into the chocolate.
