Here is a recipe I got onlineWATER GANACHE1 cup chopped chocolate, about 6 ounces7 ounces of boiling waterYou can make this in a four cup Pyrex measuring cup in the microwave or on top of the stove.The method is essentially the same.If using the microwave, nuke the cut up chocolate on half power for one minute. Stir and nuke again for 30 seconds at half power. If necessary, repeat, until the chocolate is melted. Stir in the boiling water one tablespoon at a time, making sure to incorporate it before adding the next tablespoon. Dont worry if the chocolate seizes up. Sometimes this happens, and sometimes it doesnt. Just keep on adding water one tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly. The chocolate will eventually become smooth and glossy. Put it in an eight ounce glass jar and let it set up in the fridge. It will thicken to a wonderful consistency, and keep for a very long time.If using the stove top, melt the chopped chocolate in a deep 1 1/2 -2 quart pot on the lowest possible heat. Proceed as above.
