Cabo Ancho Chile Brownies

    Posted by MystiqueFire It's my own take on brownies... I have a friend who pretty much drinks hot sauce and LOVES heat, so for his birthday I made him, a fellow pastry chef, some of my brownies.

White Chocolate Sour Cream Ganache

  Posted by ycknits I've seen comments in forum entries about how to make white chocolate ganache using sour cream instead of whipping cream. I searched every which way, but could not come up with the ratio. So, after digging around on the web and finding small quantity recipes, here is what I came up with for a larger batch. It doesn't even require measuring the ingredients. I prefer this recipe to standard white chocolate ganache because it is not so sweet (and so delicious that you will want to eat it with a... read more
