  • Microwave


  • cups chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil


  • 1. In a microwaveable-safe bowl, stir together the chocolate chips and the oil.
  • 2. Microwave it on high for 1 minute, then vigorously stir it until all the chocolate chips are melted.
  • 3. Pour the ganache over a cake and let it drip down the sides.


YIELD:  It makes about 1 cup.  Enough to cover a 12-cup Bundt cake.
CHOCOLATE CHIPS:   Use whatever flavor you like.  Or mix up some!
OIL:  I use canola oil and it works great.  Any mild, light oil, except olive oil should work.
