Double Chocolate Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache

FeaturedContest Winner

Step 9: Ganache!

Now let's make the ganache, shall we?

Take your cheesecake out of the fridge and remove the sides of the springform pan. It may have sunken evenly around the edges but almost all cheesecakes I have made do this. Trust me, this is good- it makes for a beautiful cheesecake slice once you put this fabulous ganache on. You'll see! :-)

Place your cheesecake on a serving platter if it suits you. Now, get out-

3/4 cup whipping cream
1 (6-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels (1 cup)
1 (6-ounce) package milk chocolate morsels (1 cup)

Pour your 3/4 cup of whipping cream into a saucepan on the stove and bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Remove from heat, and stir in the chocolate chips. Keep stirring, and as it comes together, switch to your whisk, stirring until it is completely combined and smooooth as silk. Let this cool slightly.
