Instructions

  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, whisk together 3/4 cup heavy cream, egg yolks, and granulated sugar and heat over medium heat for about 1-2 minutes until it coats the back of a spoon. Do not boil at any time. Remove from heat and continue whisking about 1 minute. 
  2. Add melted chocolate and whisk consistently. Transfer to a bowl and let cool completely. (If your chocolate ganache breaks, then read the blog post above to know how to fix the ganache easily.)
  3. With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whisk 3/4 cup heavy cream on medium-high speed until soft peaks form about 2-3 minutes. Add powdered sugar and whisk until stiff peaks form.
