Easy to Make Chocolate Ganache

Have you ever wondered how those yummy chocolatey explosion of the toppings or icing of chocolate cakes are made?  It is less much complicated than you think.  Here is a simple chocolate ganache that yo can make for your cakes.

140 g dark chocolates
1/2 c thickened cream
25 g unsalted butter

Place the ingredients in heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. 
Stir until melted and smooth.
Remove from heat.
Chill for 20 minutes or until it's spreadable.

Note: If you want the ganache to be a bit tangy, you can add 2 tbsp ginger wine.  If you want it to have an alcohol taste on it, add a tbsp of rum.

A comment or two will be appreciated...
