JUST IN TIME for Valentine's, this week we're rolling out a new, ongoing segment called Chef KTD! Liz Madsen, sous chef at the Crow's Nest, along with her 5-year old son, Aiden, will be showing us how to make simple and delicious recipes that the whole family will love.
This week it's an interactive, assemble-your-own dessert that has more uses than just dipping fruit. Chef KTD says you can save the leftover ganache for up to a month in the fridge and use it to frost cupcakes and fill cakes; or let it re-soften, cut up more fruit and you've got an impromptu and elegant dessert.
Chef KTD's Chocolate Ganache
Makes approx 7 cups, can easily be halved
Bring first two ingredients to a boil. Combine chocolates in a mixing bowl, when liquids have boiled, pour into chocolate and mix until shiny and smooth.
Dip any assortment of goodies into the ganache while still warm. Chef KTD suggests: fruits, marshmallows, graham crackers and bacon!
