Chocolate Ganache

Chocolate Ganache

You don’t have to be a master pastry chef to whip up a perfectly decadent chocolate ganache! With the help of the microwave, this two-ingredient sauce comes together in just under two minutes. Use this sauce to decorate cakes, ice cream sundaes, or allow the sauce to set in an Anytime tray for a hot cocoa stick— perfect for gifting!

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well..

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Make Hot Cocoa Sticks: Pour prepared ganache into 2-Tablespoon Anytime Trays. Top with crushed peppermint, mini marshmallows, chili flakes, flaky sea salt, or caramel chips, if desired. Push a popsicle stick or short pastry dowel into the center and transfer to the fridge to cool for at least 2 hours. When ready to serve, add a Hot Cocoa Stick to a mug. Pour hot milk or water over the puck and stir to melt completely. Enjoy with whipped cream!
  • For Hot Fudge Sauce: Combine 1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk, 1 cup (150g) dark chocolate chips, and 2 tablespoons cocoa powder in an Anyday deep dish and stir to combine. Microwave for 90 seconds, stirring until smooth.
