  1. Whoa! Yummy yumminess 🙂 This ganache must be incredibly good 🙂 I just wonder wheter it’s possible to use chopped chocolate instead of choc chips – they’re not available in my country :/

  2. I’ve started keeping a carton of heavy whipping cream in my fridge because I never know when I’m going to need it. Now, I’ve found another use for it. Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.
