Pronto in just a few minutes – what can be better! Try it! Here is the recipe:

Chocolate and Orange Ganache

  • 250 ml heavy cream
  • 280 grams’ dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Finely grated zest from 1 organic orange
  • 30 grams’ butter




  • First, break the chocolate into pieces and put it aside.
  • In a pan, pour the heavy cream, grated orange peel, and butter. Apply over low heat and cook until almost boiling, but be careful, it should not boil.
  • As soon as the cream is about to boil, remove from the heat and transfer to a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add the chocolate and orange juice and using an electric mixer beat the mixture until well whipped and incorporated (around 3 minutes). Place the ganache into a container and cover; refrigerate for 20 minutes, before serving.
  • Then, remove from the fridge, and just cold, whisk until you get a puffy-bubbly compound/ composto gonfio (this step is necessary if you want to get a stuff ganache, which is necessary if you want to cover pies, otherwise you can skip this step).

Buon Appetito!
