  • 4 cups chocolate chips
  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • Place chocolate chips in a heatproof glass bowl. Set aside.
  • Pour cream into a 2 quart saucepan and heat over medium heat until it just starts to bubble around the edges.
  • Remove cream from heat and pour over chocolate chips.
  • Let stand 15 minutes.
  • Stir until smooth and creamy.
  • Place a piece of plastic wrap over the bowl and press down until it touches the top of the chocolate.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set.
  • Remove from refrigerator and whip with the whisk attachment on a handheld mixer for 10-15 seconds, or until fluffy.


  • Don't let your cream get to hot!
  • This recipe uses Hershey's dark chocolate chips but you can use whatever chocolate chips you personally like.
  • Don't over beat the frosting! It literally takes about 10 seconds using a mixer.
  • The ganache will last a few weeks in the fridge and a few months when frozen.
  • Make this ahead of time. It will take a few hours to let the ganache set so keep that in mind.
  • When mixing the milk and chocolate chips, don't use a whisk! You don't want air bubbles in the ganache. make sure you use a rubber spatula.
