Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 cup Chocolate chips Semisweet
  • 1 cup Heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp Butter Unsalted


  • 1 cup Chocolate candies Use a variety of shapes and flavors


  • Double the brownie recipe and divide the batter in three 8 inch round pans. Bake and let the brownies cool down completely. 
  • While the brownies are baking and cooling, prepare chocolate frosting.
  • Also, make the chocolate ganache: In a microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate chips, heavy cream and butter. Heat in the microwave at 30 second increments, mixing after each interval. Continue doing this until you have a smooth and creamy mixture. Keep aside. 
  • Place one brownie on a cake stand.
  • Place the other brownie on top of the frosting and gently press it to secure it
  • Place the final brownie on top and spread frosting again.
  • Stick chocolate candies.
  • Drizzle chocolate ganache all over the assembled cake. You don't have to use all the ganache and you will end up with leftovers to use on other desserts. Enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
