  • 3 tablespoons of honey (30 g)
  • 2 cups of reduced fat cream (200 ml)

Chocolate ganache instructions

  • Bring the cream, honey, and butter to a simmer in a small saucepan.
  • Add the chocolate bar that are cut into smaller pieces. Stir and let this mixture sit until the chocolate has melted and all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  • Once you have a homogeneous glaze, use the ganache as a filling or topping for the cake.
