Learn how to make Chocolate Ganache in a few easy, quick steps! It’s so elegant and sure to impress, and it goes great with Brown Butter Toffee Shortbread!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 3 Tbsp Butter, cubed
  • 34 Tbsp Heavy Cream


  1. In a double boiler – or a saucepan with a heat safe bowl – fill the saucepan with 1″ of water and bring to a simmer.
  2. Place the bowl over the saucepan with simmering water and add in chocolate chips and cubed butter to the heat safe bowl. With a rubber spatula, fold and gently stir the chocolate and butter together until the chocolate begins to melt.
  3. Just prior to the last few chocolate chips melt, remove the bowl containing the chocolate and butter from the heat and continue to stir until the chocolate chips have melted entirely.
  4. Stir in the heavy cream slowly until just incorporated. Drizzle and serve immediately.
