How to Make Chocolate Ganache

This chocolate ganache recipe requires only 2 ingredients and roughly about 10 minutes.


  • 1-1/4 cup (227g) chopped chocolate or high-quality chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (227g) heavy cream


  1. Add chocolate to a heat proof glass or metal bowl.
  2. Heat the cream on the stove top until just simmering around the edges.
  3. Pour the cream over the chocolate, making sure it is completely submerged. Let the cream sit for 5-10 minutes without disturbing it.
  4. Gently whisk the cream until it is fully combined and the result is a shiny, silky chocolate ganache.


  1. The ganache will be runny while it is still hot, and will thicken until it's a scoopable consistency.
  2. For a twist on chocolate ganache and to make it dairy-free, use full-fat canned coconut milk in place of the heavy cream.
