My hips hurt.
My knees hurt.
My feet hurt.

Chocolate Ganache

Sinfully delicious...and only three ingredients.


8 oz of dark chocolate. You want to use 70-80% cacao. That will give you the dark chocolate flavor with fewer carbs. Don’t use 90-100% cacao or it will taste too strong.
¾ cup of whipping cream
1-1/2 tsp of vanilla. When I make flavored ganache I still add the vanilla for smoothness.
