2 cups Heavy Cream
Prep Time Process Time Overall Time

1. In a small bowl or cup, mix 1 teaspoon of espresso powder with 3 tablespoons of hot water. Stir until the espresso powder is completely dissolved. Set aside.

2. Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Set aside.

3. Pour 2 cups of heavy cream into a small saucepan.

4. Heat the cream on medium heat until it starts to gently boil. Watch carefully to avoid burning the cream.

5. Once the cream reaches a boil, pour it over the chopped chocolate in the bowl.

6. Add the dissolved espresso mixture. Let the mixture sit for about 1 minute without stirring. This allows the hot cream to begin melting the chocolate.

7. After allowing it to sit, gently stir the mixture with a whisk or a spatula until it becomes smooth and homogenous.

8. The chocolate should be completely melted, and the mixture should have a glossy appearance.

9. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, ensuring the wrap touches the surface of the ganache to prevent a skin from forming.

10. Chill in the refrigerator for about 2 hours, or until the ganache is firm enough to whip.

11. Once chilled and firm, take the ganache out of the fridge. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the ganache on medium speed until it becomes light and fluffy. This should take about 5 minutes. Be careful not to overwhip, as it can become grainy.

12. Your Chocolate Espresso Whipped Ganache is now ready to be used. It can be piped onto cakes, swirled on top of cupcakes, or even used as a filling for pastries.

Keep your wooden cutting board clean and fresh, simply sprinkle coarse salt over the surface. Using a lemon half, scrub the board, letting the salt and lemon do the heavy lifting. Not only does this method clean, it also deodorizes, giving your board a fresh scent.
