COOK'S NOTE: Recipe can be doubled. Simply double the ingredients. Try different flavors by using different International Delight varieties.

To heat on stove top place a heat safe bowl over a pot with 1" of water to create a double boiler.  Stir until mixture is smooth.

I prefer milk chocolate, but you can use your favorite. 

The cooler ganache gets the thicker it becomes.  Try these tasty ideas:
  • Drizzle warm over ice cream for a fabulous hot chocolate sundae or use use as chocolate fondue.
  • Allow it to cool to room temperature for thick ribbons, perfect for dipping cupcake tops.
  • Refrigerate 30-60 minutes and allow ganache to thicken, then whip with an electric mixer. You will create a divine chocolate frosting that is perfect for your favorite dessert.
  • Refrigerate over night to get a 'scoopable' consistency.  Roll balls into cocoa powder for tasty
