Ever since the holiday season started last year, I have been having too much chocolate. There were chocolate tartlets and the chocolate truffle stars, a chocolate cake and boxes of bon bon chocolats, chocolate bars from Dean & Deluca (which I braved on the weekend right before Christmas: not a very good idea), and old chocolate brownies saved from the freezer. There were even a few chocolate chip cookies if you can count that as chocolate. And not to mention that Valentines's Day is right around the corner, and I have more chocolate recipes lined up to try. Enough is enough, but I just wanted to share a detailed how-to for making chocolate ganache.
I have failed with chocolate so many times, crying over wasted (expensive) chocolate, and I know that it is one of the most frustrating experiences in the world. Hopefully, this detailed and very glossy version from Miette (which is one of the prettiest cookbooks/pastry shops ever) will save others from having to go through that kind of frustration.
