For home-made Chocolate Ganache Frosting:
8 oz (½ lb or 1 ⅓ cup of ) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Note: If you want more ganache, use the full 12 oz bag and 12 oz (1 ½ cups) of whipping cream.
Combine chocolate and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 2 minutes and stir. Heat for an additional 1-2 minutes or until chocolate is fully melted and whisk until well incorporated and velvety. Wait about 5-10 minutes before adding it top of pudding on cake.
The ganache will thicken as it cools. When it’s completely cool, it will be thick and fudgy. You can reheat it to achieve your desired consistency.
