Ganache is the Ultimate Dessert Topping
You are literally just 2 ingredients and 5 minutes away from this amazingness. Once the ganache is whisked, it can be immediately poured over a dessert (like Cookie Dough Brownies or Chocolate Orange Pie) for a silky covering. If you let it sit at room temperature it can also be piped for an amazingly rich dessert topping!
If you are pouring the ganache, you are going to want to let it cool at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before refrigerating. This helps keep it nice and shiny.
