The Technique 

Chocolate Ganache Filling

A simple combination of chocolate & cream may be used numerous ways to create all sorts of bake shop fundamentals. The ratio alone may vary the end result from a sauce to accompany cakes & pies or tweaked ever so slightly to serve as the foundation for rich, decadent tart fillings. Beyond the basics, extra sugar, butter & extracts may be added to the mixture as you please to adjust the flavor, too. I decided to highlight this particular combination to illustrate the consistency desired for tarts in particular. It looks very thin once heated & blended, however allowing it to stand at room temperature will firm it slightly. Once chilled, the filling becomes the ideal texture– smooth & creamy when ready to serve them.

Once the chocolate mixture has been heated & whisked together until smooth, allow it to stand at room temperature before using. It will form a skin over the surface & thicken slightly. Gently stir the ganache before filling tartlet shells. For this recipe application, be certain not to over blend as the consistency will thicken too much & that’s another lesson worth visiting soon.
