Red Wine Chocolate Ganache

I thought a red wine chocolate ganache could be good, but I had no idea just how good it could be. After tasting my red wine chocolate ganache, I wanted to give myself a standing ovation. This may be the best ganache that I have ever made. It’s intensely chocolaty and buttery smooth with a robust sweetness from the wine.


Try the red wine chocolate ganache on your cupcakes (any will do, but I recommend my regular chocolate cupcakes or red wine cupcakes) or make a big pot of red wine chocolate ganache to dip fruit or bread into at your next wine party. Don’t be surprised when people start bowing down to you and begging you to make it again.

To make this red wine chocolate ganache, I used the basic proportions that I originally found on an eGullet forum. That post no longer exists.
