  • 5 oz. 60% Cocoa Chocolate
  • 4 oz. Heavy Cream
  • 2 tbsp Jim Beam Black Label or your favorite bourbon.


  • Heat heavy cream in a sauce pan until it begins to simmer.
  • While cream is heating, chop up baking chocolate and place in a small glass bowl.
  • Add bourbon to bowl with chocolate.
  • Once cream is heated, pour it over the bourbon and chocolate and let it set for two minutes, DO NOT STIR.
  • After it sets, beat with a wisk until a rich chocolate ganache forms.
  • Ganache will thicken the longer it sets, so if you're dipping, do it early. If you're spreading, wait a little bit.
