Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a glass bowl
  2. Set bowl on top of saucepan with an inch or so of simmering water
  3. Stir ganache gently until chocolate is completely melted and ganache is silky smooth
  4. Use immediately for a chocolate drip cake or let cool until the same consistency as peanut butter for coating a cake for fondant
  5. Double wrap leftovers in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator
Recipe Notes

This is my favorite chocolate to cream ratio for coating a cake. Using a double boiler method makes the ganache turn out perfectly every time. Leftovers can be softened for coating another cake by using 5-10 second bursts in the microwave.
