  • 8 ounces 64% Chocolate
  • ½ cup (120 ml) Heavy Cream

For the Coating

Pour the cream over the chocolate and allow to sit for 5 minutes.

Step 5: Stir

Gently stir the mixture together until smooth and shiny. It will come to together fairly quickly and with little effort, just keep staring. It should be nice and silky smooth when it's all done with no clumps.

Step 6: Cover and Chill

Place plastic wrap directly on top of the chocolate and place into refrigerator for 3 hours to chill. While you wait for the ganache to chill, prepare your coatings and place each one on separate bowls.

Step 7: Get Messy and Roll

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. After 3 hours remove filling from refrigerator and remove the plastic wrap. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out ganache and roll into balls using gloves.
