In case you didn't know I love CHOCOLATE!
Luckily I am a co-hosting #ChocolateLove!
This is my second Chocolate love post so check out: Fudgy Cupcakes with PB frosting
I was invited to my best friends house on Sunday for the Super Bowl.
I have a football cake mode and I thought it would be appropriate to use it!
My friend Megan LOVES my Chocolate Ganache so I decided to make some just for her.
I looked around for a great yellow cake mix and decided to make one of Martha Stewart recipes.
Can't go wrong with her recipes!!!

I then adapted Martha Stewart's Ganache frosting.
I used the following ingredients:
2 cups of heavy whipping cream
12 oz of bittersweet chocolate (chopped)
1/4 corn syrup.
To make the ganache following these steps:
1. Combine the whipping cream and corn syrup
2. Heat it up ; Do not boil
3. Add on top of the chocolate in a small bowl
4. Do not stir until chocolate has begun to melt.
5. Stir until combined
6. Put into the fridge for 10 minutes. Stir and repeat until chocolate thickens.
