Ganache -- a smooth mixture of chocolate and cream -- is one of the richest, most luscious of all chocolate frostings. The frosting is made in the same manner as the chocolate ganache glaze, and then allowed to thicken until the frosting is spreadable. In ganache recipes, the proportions of chocolate to cream vary depending on whether it will be a coating, filling, or truffle. This recipe is a standard 1-to-1 weight ratio of chocolate to cream, which is good for coating cakes. Lately I been using ganache under the fondant. It holds the cake shape really well.

A macaron is a sweet meringue-like cookie which is filled with ganache, buttercream, or jam. It is shell-like on the outside a little chewy on the inside and easily melts in your mouth. We love macarons because they are sweet and beautiful and the flavor possibilities are endless! Each one is a treat to eat and a combination of flavors makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift! Macarons have a enviable reputation for being difficult to make. They aren't the easiest, but they are not so difficult as you can see with this recipe. My 14 year old daughter learned how to make em, so it's not that hard :)
