Perfect Chocolate Ganache:
Approximately 2 cups chocolate chips
Approximately 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
The key to this ganache is to not measure anything. Just trust me on this, you can’t depend on the measurements! Pour desired amount of chocolate chips (recommended approx. 2 cups) into a microwave safe bowl. Pour the whipping cream into the bowl until it’s just level with the chocolate chips (it shouldn’t cover the chocolate chips completely). Microwave for 1 minute and whisk until smooth.
