I have a request for a cake with a fudgy like chocolate filling. She definitley doesnt want anything as creamy as buttercream. My first thought was ganache but the recipe i have used in the past isnt that thick. Do you have a recipe you could share?
Sorry, I can't recall who originally posted this....
bring just to a boil a 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk (I use the Walmart brand that is labeled "fat free" which totally makes me laugh but it's 1/2 the price of other brands!)
pour that over 1 bag of Nestle semi sweet chips
let it sit for 5 min and then stir, let it continue cooling and it's the most AMAZING fudgey-ness EVER! I've used it between layers in cakes and it works great. I've also spread it over hot brownies and it is out of this world!!
What size bag of chips?
regular size.....can't recall how many ounces but the typical Nestle bag of chips....
this is awesome....I'll be making some tomorrow!!! (I logged into tonight to find a receipe for ganache) Im soo excited lol
If you are keen on a ganache taste, then heat up some cream to boiling, then toss in TWICE that measure (by weight) in chopped dark chocolate. Mix until it is completely smooth. Leave overnight, and it will set into a firm paste consistency, which can be used as a chocolate filling (it is the samer consistency you would use to put under fondant to smooth the cake surface in a 3D cake).
