This Microwave Chocolate Ganache is my secret to making amazing desserts and an easy way to turn around a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. (Bonus points if you know that children’s book.) My sincere apologies for not drawing your attention to the amazing-ness that it is sooner. It’s just so insanely simple that I didn’t want you to laugh at me for sharing it with you. You aren’t laughing, right?
How easy, you ask? So easy that it uses just two ingredients, takes less than five minutes to prepare and comes together thanks to a microwave. A MICROWAVE, friends. I’ve never used that word in a recipe title ever. EVER.
I always have the ingredients for this Microwave Chocolate Ganache on hand. My favorite dark chocolate chips and whipping cream delivered to my doorstep each week by a local dairy. You simply add both the chocolate chips and whipping cream to a microwave safe bowl, microwave and whisk together. And of course, try to resist the urge to simply grab a spoon and devour the deliciousness you’ve just made.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I figured this was the perfect time to divulge just how easy ganache can be. I also am joining other food bloggers sharing Valentine’s inspired recipes today, partnering with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget going to all childhood cancer combined, I knew it was important for me to get involved.

This two ingredient Microwave Chocolate Ganache comes together in less than five minutes and is amazing on it’s own for a treat as simple as a dip for fresh fruit and is equally amazing in desserts such as my Black Bottom No Bake Cherry Cheesecake and Sno-Cap Chocolate Ganache Brownies.
