I am a chocoholic of note!
Chocolate has always been one of my weaknesses. I could eat it as a meal. Shocking I know! But it’s the truth and I often did until I got a little older and wiser and learned to take care of my health more. Just kidding, older and wiser, was only part of the reason. My teeth and skin started complaining and so I toned it down a little.
So now I eat chocolate in moderation.
Sometimes though I go all out and have a real chocolate binge. Involving bars of whole nut chocolate, plain chocolate, dark, any really. I also throw in some Tim Tams.
If you don’t know what those are you have to try them out!! Oh my goodness, divine! They’re a biscuit filled with chocolate and are designed to have coffee sucked through the center.
As the hot coffee soaks in the chocolate melts, the biscuit softens, and you’re left with a mouthful of wonderful chocolatey goodness.

Ok, you get the point I love love love chocolate!! My sister and I watched many of our favorite series with a cup of coffee in one hand and an entire family size bar of chocolate in the other. A bar each.

So, One Day I Discovered Chocolate Ganache!
You can imagine my excitement when I discovered icing could be made out of chocolate! Chocolate Ganache is a heavenly icing made of chocolate and cream. I love two-ingredient recipes almost as much as I adore chocolate!
I’m also a huge fan of perfect presentation and few things achieve the elegant and glossy finish of a chocolate ganache icing!
So here’s my recipe. Some will say you need the perfect temperature and fancy pots. But I’m not scientific in the least. So I just made mine through trial and error.
It’s not hard at all! My chocolate ganache has turned out perfectly every time. If you love quick easy recipes, download this one or save it to your Pinterest. It’s worth it!

The only two things you’ll need are good quality chocolate and cream. You really don’t have to break the bank. I’m just saying don’t buy the cheapest option. The cream can be either long-life or fresh. Both work well.
Here’s how –
So pour this chocolatey masterpiece all over your next cake. I know you’ll love it! And don’t forget to tell me what you think!
