One of my boys does not like frosting. I know...whose son is he?! Chocolate Ganache, however, is acceptable to his palette. So acceptable that I had to keep swatting him away while trying to take these photos because he would. not. keep his fingers off the bowl or the whisk or anything that had come in contact with the chocolatey nectar.

I feel like Chocolate Ganache is a delicious little secret because I'm not sure everyone knows how easy it is to make. Two ingredients, a few minutes of your time and one of the universe's most decadent glazes is born.

There are times when you'll want to keep ganache more on the glazey side and there will be times when it's better suited as a spreadable frosting. This recipe will accommodate both options! For a glaze, use immediately after whisking. For a frosting, let it sit until it has completely cooled, re-whisk and spread. For a true Chocolate Ganache Frosting, check this delicious recipe out.

You might be asking yourself what sorts of baked goods you should put Chocolate Ganache on. The answer: EVERYTHING. What wouldn't it go on? would be the more appropriate question. Just to give you a few inspiring places to start, replace the dulce de leche with ganache in these Chocolate Sandwich Cookies. Drizzle it over the tops of these Peanut Butter Cup Brownies or spread it all over chocolate cake.

This stuff is dreamy, creamy and versatile. Enjoy enjoy enjoy!
