Chocolate Ganache (rich chocolate icing)

Ready in 15 minutes

Chocolate ganache consists of a thick, tasty icing made of chocolate and heavy cream. Some say it was invented around 1850..Some say it started in Switzerland, used as a base for truffles. Others say it was invented in Paris at the Patisserie Siravdin.. who knows! I love it!

"This is delicious chocolate frosting that improves greatly by using high quality semisweet chocolate. I need to make it again. On my first try I burned out my old blender and am not sure why. I may use a good quality cocoa with extra butter,sugar and cream."

This is delicious chocolate frosting that improves greatly by using high quality semisweet chocolate. I need to make it again. On my first try I burned out my old blender and am not sure why. I may use a good quality cocoa with extra butter,sugar and cream.

This is delicious but I need to make it again several times before I get it right. On my first try I burned out my old blender and am not sure why.
