a little dab will do

Yes, chocolate. Ganache, actually.
When I had lunch at a friend's house and she served this dessert,
I just had to try it. She had purchased the ganache but
I thought I would try making it.
 I googled it, of course, and found and adapted a Martha S. recipe.
So easy it was done in a few minutes. I lightly sprayed a small pie plate.
Brought one cup of heavy cream just to a boil over medium high heat.
Then poured that over a package of semi sweet chocolate chips,
added a dash of kosher salt and about 1/4-1/2 tsp vanilla and let it sit.
No stirring.
After ten minutes I stirred it gently until it had turned to shiny chocolate,
poured it in the pan and wrapped it well in the freezer once it had cooled.
It turned out perfectly, to my standards.
Just a little dab will do you.
It slowly starts to melt and intertwine with the fruit.
So good!

  1. It looks beautiful, Dotsie! I'm sure it's delicious, too! I remember this dessert from your post about brunch at a neighbor's house. Good for you, making your own. Homemade is always so much better, when you have the time. The fresh fruit looks wonderful, too.

    Hope you have a good day -- it's a warm one out there! :)

    Hugs,

  3. Oh does that look yummy with your beautiful fruit, Dotsie. It's so wonderful we can just look up anything and bingo we have the recipe that is needed. The strawberries have been so good this year and with a little chocolate that would send them over the top. ♥

  10. Sure looks good! It's not something I should make because just a dab would not be enough for me.

  12. I have a recipe for ganache but never thought about freezing it to have on hand for a berry dessert. Great idea and it does look delicious.

  14. Yum! Your ganache looks wonderful! I have never made it but I believe you when you say it is easy. It would be nice to have on hand if company dropped by. Love your blue transferware plate. I have two of those same plates and several pieces of blue and white but mostly pink/red. I am a BIG collector of transferware. Thanks for sharing and Happy June!

    Blessings,

  15. I don't think, no, I absolutely know, that a little dab will not do me!

    I could eat the entire bowl.
