GG, those chocolates look positively drool-worthy. Does (s)he sell retail, or just to friends and family?

Mostly wholesale. These are from her "build your own Valentine's chocolates box" promotion at the local whole-animal butcher shop that also sells other locally produced goods. They're amazing

I am retired, but I still know a great product when I use it, and I have used their ganache many times. Have you ever noticed I never mention their icings? That's because they are terrible!

Cheif: You let the ganache set in room temperature for while then it stop being runny , you can even whip it and pipe it then.

butter, chocolate, chocolate chips, cream, recipe, white chocolate chips

Creamiest Chocolate Frosting Ever Hve you ever noticed that most butter-cream frostings have a slightly grainy feel from the powdered sugar? I have. I found a way to get rid of that grainy texture, but it involves work. So I tried something different, at least for me. Many of you may already know this recipe, it's simply a modified ganache. Ingredients: 1 cup good milk, or semi sweet chocolate chips 1 cup good white chocolate chips 2/3 cup cream 3 tbs. salted butter. Place all ingredients into a microwave safe dish, and heat for two minutes on highest microwave sitting. Remove and whisk together. Remove tbs. of the mixture, and place in the freezer until room temp. Feel the texture of the room temperature frosting. It should be soft enough to spread, but firm enough not to run. If needed, add a little more chocolate chips, or cream to achieve the desired texture. This frosting is so creay that it's nearly unbelievable. You can see yourself turning this into a filled chocolate filling, or a truffle, or eating it as a chocolate spread on graham crackers. Mix with nutella for something amazing. You get the picture.
