  • 16 oz dark chocolate, chopped or 450 g


  • In a saucepan, bring cream and corn syrup to a boil.
  • In a bowl, pour hot cream mixture over chocolate. Let melt for 2 minutes. Whisk until ganache is smooth. Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until it has thickened and is spreadable, stirring four or five times.
