We have some great cooks in our family.
We like to try new recipes and tweak the old ones.
We're always asking each other, "Can I have your recipe?"
So we created a place to share the recipes that others ask for, the experiments that turn out well or the recipes that we fall back on because they're quick and yummy. Some of these recipes are original, some are gleaned from friends and some are blatantly copied from other sources.
All of them have been tested and found delicious.

Chocolate Ganache Frosting

(print this recipe)
This frosting is like having truffles on top of your cake!

7 1/2 ounces bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy (whipping) cream
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

Melt the chocolate with the cream in a double boiler, over barely simmering water, whisking until smooth. Add the butter and whisk until smooth. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate, covered, for 15 minutes. Beat the frosting with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for about 8 minutes, until thick enough to spread. After you frost your cake or cupcakes, you may need to refrigerate for about an hour till the frosting sets.
