Super Easy Chocolate Ganache

Ganache is actually very easy to make... I will say that it can be very bitter, especially if you don't use the best chocolate possible. You can use bars, chips, pretty much any form of chocolate. I was using this ganache with something very sweet so I didn't mind using not so great chocolate and having somewhat bitter ganache. 
I like using a 1:1 ratio with chocolate and heavy cream, I like the consistency better and the creaminess. 

First you just need to give the chocolate a rough chop, if using a bar. 

Next, heat the cream on the stove stop to a boil.

Pour the hot cream over the chocolate.

Let the hot cream soften the chocolate for 2-5 minutes.

Then just stir with a whisk until it is all incorporated and smooth.
