Basic Chocolate Ganache and Truffles is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made cupcakes with ganache topping for my daughters b-day. This was my first time making ganache. I can't believe how fast and easy it was compared to the conventional way I always did it (using can frosting). They looked so smooth and shiny,like a perfessional did it. I sprinkled a little red sugar on top because its her favorite color. They looked so good I didn't want anyone to eat them, but needless to say that didn't happen. When my daughter seen the cupcakes she was so surprised and instantly knew they looked different from the boring ones I make every year. She smiled as she took a bite and said "delicious". The only suggestion I recommend is to increase the reciepe amount especially if you come from a large family like I do, because there is never enough. Baking is not a strong skill I possess but after going on WILTON'S WEBSITE I believe you can become a better baker because of all the information and resources avaliable to you. Making ganache is fairly simple, but because I am not a baker I believe in taking baby steps and the ganache recipe was perfect to start with and to teach my kids. My daughter and I love to go on WILTON'S WEBSITE and see all the different recipes and the knew creative ideals they keep comming up with. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is yummy as both a filling and topping for cakes and also serves for an easy fondue recipe when you substitute the candy melts with something like Godiva chocolate chips! While it's still warm dip in your favorite fondue treats like marshmallows, pound cake and rice krispie treats! My friends always request it at parties.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I first made this it took a little bit to get the right consistency I wanted. When making a chocolate covered cake I prefer to use the ganache because I find it to be faster than regular chocolate frosting and everybody loves it. It makes a cake look simple, but elegant and tastes great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you let this set up in the refrigerator, stirring regularly, you can pipe it on to cupcakes (tip 2D, the large open star tip for cupcakes). Your cupcakes will look as decadent as they taste and your guests will enjoy the extra ganache!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make a chocolate layer cake with a fudge filling between layers. Frost the sides of cake with the homemade chocolate buttercream. Then beginning at center, slowly pour slightly cooled ganache on top of cake. If it runs too much, let cool a little more. Pull the ganache to the edges of cake and allow small 'drips' to slowly run over the edge. Depending upon season, immediately sprinkle colored candies on the warm ganache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this recipe for tuffles and everyone loved them. I gave them out as gifts for x-mas; rolled them in a variety of toppings, placed them in mini cupcake liners and packaged them in x-mas tin containers. No one believed that something so elegant only took 2 ingredients and were so easy to make! This is a no fail recicpe for all the people who think they can't bake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family loves the ganache on cakes, but they also use what is left over ice-cream!!
Date published: 2010-12-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, quick and delicious!! Perfect as a glaze or even as a filling. If you plan to use it as a filling, make sure you let it cool and harden to more of a spreadable consistancy so it does not run off the edges of the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this ganache recipe. Me and my husband would watch cake shows and have always heard of ganache. The name alone sounded intimidating, who would of known that two easy ingredients could make this wonderful chocolate. I cant get enough of it.
