“How to use ganache: Truffles, ice cream sauce, chocolate fondue, hot cocoa (heat 1 cup milk per serving and stir in about 1 tablesoon ganache), chocolate glaze, frosting (beat in 1/2 cup soft butter). The proportion of cream to chocolate in this recipe is right for semisweet or mildly bittersweet chocolates--not the darker eating chocolates (higher than about 60% cacao). For darker chocolates, use more cream.”
