I am looking for a recipe for ganache that you spread on (not pour on) then use a hot knife to smooth.

I can't find it. Does anyone have such a thing?

I heat 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1 cup semisweet chips in a double broiler until completely melted. Let sit or refridgerate until spreadable. Personally, I let mine sit on the counter overnight and stir about every hour before I go to bed. It's great the next morning. It's spreadable.

The kicker is that for some reason this doesn't taste great when warm, but when cooled...YUMMY!

Wow thats certainly sounds easy!

is there any particular type of cream you use? Have you ever tried mint chocolate chips?

I just use a standard ganache recipe, pour it out into a sheet pan and let it sit--without stirring until it is a spreadable consistency. It usually takes a few hours. Works great you get a super smooth silky feeling icing--this is what we did at the bakery I worked at.

Slightly set up ganache can also be whipped in your mixer to a frosting consistency, though it changes the color to more of a light brown.

I tried it with chocolate flavored bark coating and heavy whipping cream. The next day it tasted like Dove chocolate! So smooth and creamy, it was awesome!

I strictly use Mayfield whipping cream and Nestle chips. I haven't tried any other brands, I loved what I had the first time I tried it so I never changed it!

Good Luck!

Store brand heavy cream and ghirardelli (sp?) semisweet chips!
