  • 8 ounces Godiva dark chocolate squares, chopped
  • 8 ounces heavy cream


  • Place chocolate into a heat safe bowl and set aside.
  • Pour cream into a small saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat.
  • Pour cream over chocolate and allow mixture to sit for 2 to 3 minutes. Once chocolate has melted stir together until a nice, thick and smooth ganache has been created.
  • Cover and refrigerate until mixture firms up completely, 2 to 3 hours.
  • Remove from refrigerator and uncover. Whip chilled ganache with an electric hand mixer until light, fluffy and has almost doubled in volume.
  • Spread or pipe onto pastry of choice and serve.


  • *Makes 2 cups
  • **Make sure not to over-whip the ganache or it will get chunky and “break.”
