Buddy Valastro's Chocolate Ganache

Serves about 2 cups

Originally aired

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 9 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
PREPARATION

Put the heavy cream in a saucepan, and set it over medium-high heat. As soon as it begins to simmer, remove the pot from the heat. Add the chocolate and stir with a wooden spoon to melt the chocolate. Stir in the corn syrup.

To cover a cake with poured ganache, set a wire rack in or over a baking tray. Set the cake on a rack. Carefully ladle the molten ganache over the cake in a steady stream, letting it run over the cake until uniformly covered.

Otherwise, transfer to a bowl and refrigerate for about 1 hour. If using for filling, soften in a double boiler over medium heat until pourable.

Let any unused ganache cool, transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Reheat gently in a double boiler set over simmering water, stirring with a rubber spatula until warm and pourable.
