Easy Chocolate Ganache in bowlI needed a chocolate ganache to frost a cake and didn't have time to go to the store to get heavy cream, so I made this alternative using chocolate chips, butter and milk. You can use it as a dessert topping, too!


Cook Time: 7 minutes to cook plus cooling time.


  • 4 oz dark chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1/4 cup whole or 2% milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter
Easy Chocolate Ganache ingredients


  1. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set aside.
  2. chocolate chips in bowl
  3. Place milk and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until butter has melted completely. Increase heat to medium high and cook a couple of minutes. You will see little bubbles around the edge of the saucepan. Do not allow the milk to boil.
  4. milk and butter in pan
  5. Pour the hot milk and butter mixture into the bowl of chocolate and allow it to sit for 5 minutes, then stir until the chocolate has completely melted and the mixture is shiny and smooth.

  7. Leave it for half an hour at room temperature to set up, or you can refrigerate it if you're in a hurry.
