* 1/4 cup heavy cream
* 3 tablespoon butter
* 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate-I used Baker’s
* 1 cup powdered sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 to 3 tablespoons hot water if needed to thin icing
Scald the heavy cream and butter in the microwave. Do not let it boil. This will take about 2 minutes.
Add 4 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate to the scalded milk. The scalded milk will melt the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is very smooth.
Whisk in 1 cup of powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
The icing or ganache should easy run off your spoon. If it does not, add 1 tablespoon of hot water at a time and stir until it easily runs off the spoon.
Homemade icing or ganache recipe below – If you are in a really big hurry, you could use a can of chocolate frosting. Just heat it up in the microwave until it will pour smoothly.
