I needed a chocolate ganache recipe for the cake I was making for Matthew's birthday. A quick google brought me to the Food Network site and a very simple recipe popped up. It is by far the easiest recipe I think I have ever made and tastes incredibly delicious. It does require some cool time (2 hours in the fridge or 4 hours at room temperature), but it is so worth the wait.

What you need:
  • 8 oz. bittersweet chocolate 
  • 1 cup heavy cream
Directions:
  1. Chop chocolate finely as best as you can. Then place in a medium heatproof bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring heavy cream to a boil. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't boil over. It happens in the blink of an eye.
  3. Pour boiling cream over chocolate immediately. Gently tap the bowl on the counter so the chocolate settles and then let sit for 1 minute, undisturbed.
  4. Slowly stir with a rubber spatula starting from the center and working to the sides. Try not to add air to it. Stir for about 2 minutes until chocolate is melted completely.
  5. Let sit at room temperature until it cools to 70 degrees. This will take around 4 hours.
  6. The ganache is ready to use --or-- cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

While not ganache, this Maple Cream is also a fantastic 2-ingredient recipe. But this Nutella Ganache Dip recipe from Wine and Glue is ganache and also a lovely dessert slash appetizer that I would love to try.
