Chocolate Glaze/Ganache
INGREDIENTS

6            ounces chocolate (may use bittersweet or semisweet), chopped


¾           cup heavy cream


3            tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces

Instructions

Put the chopped chocolate in the Cuisinart® mixing bowl.


Put the heavy cream into a small saucepan and bring to just a simmer. Pour hot cream over chocolate. Allow to sit for 1 minute to cool slightly.


Attach the chef’s whisk and mix on Speed 4 until chocolate is melted and the mixture comes together, about 2 minutes. Add butter, one cube at a time, and whisk until fully incorporated and shiny.


If using as a glaze, use immediately. If using as a filling, allow to sit until slightly hardened. Any leftovers can be refrigerated until solid, and then scooped and shaped into truffles.
