Recipes

Rich Chocolate Ganache 

Rich Chocolate Ganache 

1/2 Cup Heavy cream

8oz Milk Chocolate (chips)

1 oz (2 Tbs) unsalted butter softened

 

In a small saucepan, heat cream to a simmer.  Place chocolate and butter in a bowl.  Once cream is heated thoroughly, pour over chocolate and butter and let stand 1 minute. Mix together with spatula until creamy.  If still lumpy, place in microwave for 20 seconds. Mixture might be too runny initially so let sit at room temp or refrigerate, stirring every so often until reaching the right consistency--essentially it won’t run off the macaron shell.

Cream Cheese Filling

6 oz cream cheese

6 tbs butter, softened

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Tbs of cream (if needed)
