Shiny Chocolate Ganache

 This ganache can be used as either a frosting or a cupcake filling.  For a frosting, dip the tops of cupcakes into the ganache while it is still slightly warm.  For a filling, chill the ganache for at least 1 to 2 hours.  Then, fill each cup in a cupcake pan only half full with batter, and scoop about a teaspoon of ganache into each cup.  Pour the second half of the batter over the ganache.  Bake as usual according to cupcake recipe.



  • 4.5 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup cream


  1. Pour the chocolate into a medium bowl.
  2. Heat the cream in a small saucepan until just boiling.  Immediately pour the cream onto the chocolate, and mix the chocolate until it completely melts, creating a silky smo0th ganache.
