Hi, I'm Dennis Mandragonna, chef at Porters Neck Country Club, today we're going to melt chocolate for dipping. You need heavy cream, good chocolate, a little bit of butter, we're going to make a Ganache. You need equal parts chocolate, let's do half a pound of chocolate. Eight ounces of cream, and just one ounce of butter. For Ganache, bring the cream up, just to a boil. Pour it over your chocolate, and just lightly stir. It's getting nice and thick, make sure there's no lumps. And this is a Ganache, equal parts chocolate, heavy cream and a knob of butter. Now you can let this cool, whip it up, makes a nice icing for cakes or a filling for cakes. If you cool it out, whip it up a little bit, you can make truffles. Truffles are made with Ganache, you can flavor it with raspberry liqueur, coffee liqueur, just about a half an ounce or something like that. And you have a really nice flavored chocolate. Dennis Mandragonna, that's chocolate for dipping.
