Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 6 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until just melted. Then, remove from heat.
  2. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before applying to cake. Ganache should be cooled, but not hardened and thick.

Recipe Notes

Putting hot chocolate on buttercream can melt the buttercream!  Placing the cake in the fridge prior to applying the chocolate can help prevent melting.
