chocolate chips or 6 oz semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate
60% chocolate works best for ganache
instant coffee granules
If using bars, chop the chocolate into chip-sized pieces.
Place the chocolate, milk or cream, and any additional flavors* in a microwave-safe bowl.
Heat on high for 30 seconds. Stir.
Heat an additional 30 seconds on high. Stir with a wire whisk for one minute or until smooth. If some chunks remain, heat another 15 seconds to melt.
Set aside to cool for 20 minutes.
Pour over a cake. Do not spread it as it will self-level and create a smooth coating.
Or dip cupcukes. Dip 2-3 times for a thicker coating.
: Salt can be combined with the orange, peppermint or coffee. Otherwise, I recommend sticking with one flavor addition.
