Dark Chocolate-Chili Ganache
  • 1 (3.5oz) bar of dark chocolate (I used Perugina, but you can use whatever you like)
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream + 1-2 tbsp extra (if necessary)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp ground cayenne pepper
  1. Break up your chocolate bar into individual squares.
  2. Place the chocolate squares, corn syrup, and ¼ cup cream in a microwave bowl or cup.
  3. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, then stir.
  4. Continue to microwave in 15 second intervals as needed, stirring after each time until the chocolate is smooth and melted.
  5. If necessary (it usually is for me), add 1-2 tbsp extra cream and stir vigorously to smooth out your ganache until it is silky and pourable.
  6. Stir in the vanilla and cayenne pepper.
  7. Spoon ganache into a small serving dish/bowl.
  8. Enjoy, with fresh fruits!
