Chocolate ganache recipe -
- To make chocolate ganache you can simply melt chocolate with double cream in a glass bowl above a pan of boiling water ( I use the hob to heat the water, but be sure to turn this right down once the chocolate begins to melt so it doesn't burn). I use the ratio of 3 to 1 chocolate to double cream

- To make rice krispie treats you just need to melt a little butter and your marshmellows in a pan over the hob, take off the heat, then mix in your rice krispies and let them cool down.
