Basic Truffle Ganache

Recipe by Renee Shelton

Ganache is utilitarian - and can be dressed up or down simply with a few garnishes or flavoring ingredients. The recipe below uses a combination of milk and dark chocolate.

Yield: 1 batch ganache.


  • 2 pounds dark chocolate (no less that 60%)

  • 4 ounces milk chocolate

  • 1 quart cream


  1. Chop the chocolate if it's not already in pistols or chips.

  2. Heat the cream to just boiling, and pour over the chocolate. Shake the bowl a little to ensure the chocolate is completely covered with the cream. Let set a few minutes to soften the chocolate.

  3. Whisk the chocolate and cream together until it is a smooth, shiny mass.

  4. Use warm or cooled.
