Remarks

The proportions for a ganache are very simple: half cream and half chocolate.

Chocolate lovers will enjoy adding a little coffee (2 tablespoonsful, or 1 teaspoonful of instant coffee powder or granules) to the ganache to boost the flavour even more.

You can also add a vanilla pod to the cream to flavour the ganache.
