    3. Pour hot cream over the chocolate, push the chocolate down so that it's all under the surface of the cream and let it set for 5 minutes. 
    4. Add salt and vanilla and whisk everything together until it's smooth. If any lumps remain, put the mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds and whisk again.
    5. If you have an immersion blender you can use it to remove any remaining lumps as well for a super cream ganache
    6. Ganache can be kept in the refrigerator for 1 week for frozen for up to 6 months. 


*Note* using a scale is recommended for accuracy and to ensure your ganache turns out.

      Yes you can! Half-and-half permanently thins down ganache. It will thicken as it cools, but it will remain more pourable than a traditional ganache. If it becomes too thick, heat it gently or add a bit more half-and-half. Just keep the ratios for the half-and-half the same as you would for the whipping cream.
