Pretty much all ganache recipes require as little at 2 ingredients and hardly any steps, yet many struggle to achieve a smooth ganache. I too struggled with this for a while until I discovered adding butter and honey to it. Not only does it make it super smooth and velvety, it also enhances the flavors. This is my go to ganache recipe whenever I want to glaze a cake. We love this ganache recipe so much we actually serve it as chocolate fondue at parties. You have got to try dipping strawberries, bananas, or even pretzels in it. It makes a quick and easy last minute dessert! Anyone who enjoys chocolate like I do, will absolutely fall in love with this recipe! 

Ingredients:

12 oz good quality semisweet chocolate chips 

1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, warmed

6 tbsp butter 

6 tbsp honey

 

Instructions:

1 . Fill a saucepan with about 2 inches of water and bring it to a simmer (not a boil). Place a heatproof bowl on top of the saucepan and add 12 oz of semisweet chocolate chips. 

18 . Stir the chocolate chips with a spatula until they are melted. Then very slowly stir in 1 1/4 cup warmed heavy whipping cream. (I just warm the heavy cream in the microwave for about 30 seconds). 

19 . Once the heavy whipping cream is mixed in well, add 6 tbsp sliced butter. 

20 . Once the butter is melted, mix in 6 tbsp honey. If you end up with small bits of chocolate, strain the chocolate through a mesh strainer to ensure a smooth ganache. 

 

21 . Use the ganache for coating cakes or  as chocolate fondue and dip fruits in it.
