This is a recipe for ganache used to fill a chocolate bon bon. The ganache can also be used for truffles, or simply a topping for icecreams and other desserts.
How to Make Vanilla Ganache (for filling chocolates)

- Remove from the heat and pluck out the bean pod.
- Pour the hot cream over the chcocolate and butter, and allow to sit for at least two minutes before stirring. If the chocolate does not melt completely, place the bowl over a double boiler and stir until the chocolate is smooth and no lumps remain.
