Chocolates - Week 5, June 8th

These recipes are copied straight from my notes in my individual production pastry class. I’m putting them here on just a pinch for my own posterity.

This is a recipe for ganache used to fill a chocolate bonbon. The ganache can also be used for truffles, or simply a topping for icecreams and other desserts.

1Combine the heavy cream and coffee in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and let steep for 5 minutes.
