    About this recipe: This is a rich, dark chocolate topping or decoration that has lots of uses. It can be whipped as a filling or icing, or just poured over whatever cake you like.

    Serves: 16 

    • 300g dark chocolate, chopped
    • 1 cup (250ml) heavy cream
    • 1 tablespoon (15ml) dark rum, optional

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Place the chocolate into a medium bowl. Heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil, watching carefully to ensure it doesn't overflow. When the cream has come to a boil, pour over the chopped chocolate and whisk until smooth. Stir in rum, if desired.
    2. Allow the ganache to cool slightly before pouring over a cake. Start at the centre of the cake and work outward. For a fluffy frosting or chocolate filling, allow it to cool until thick, then whip with a whisk until light and fluffy.
