KITCHEN QUEERS RECIPE CARD
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels
1 ounce 100% cacao unsweetened baking chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 stick butter (softened to room temperature)
Utensils and Supplies
microwave safe glass measuring cup
covered container (for storage)
Pour cream into a glass measuring cup. Microwave cream until it just begins to bubble. The time this will take
depends on the wattage of your microwave oven. In the KQ 1250 watt oven, this took less than 2 minutes at full power.
Break up baking chocolate in mixing bowl. Add chocolate chips. Pour hot cream over chocolate. Allow the chocolate
to begin to melt. Begin stirring the mixture with a whisk. The color of the mixture will change as the chocolate melts
into the cream. When the chocolate has melted and combined with the cream, add butter. Whisk butter into mixture
thoroughly. Add vanilla. Whisk in vanilla and your ganache is complete. Ganache can be served warm over ice
cream or allowed to cool to use as frosting on cupcakes or as a donut glaze.
