I made a cherry variation, using some of the extra cherry syrup from a can of cherry pie filling in place of the raspberry preserves. Yum!

Heavenly tasting! We thought this was fantastic! I used it as a drizzle over I chocolate pound cake and it really "made" the cake. It was very silky smooth and rich. Thanks for a keeper! I'll be using this again.

Great ganache. I used it as a filling to a two layer chocolate cake "The only chocolate cake recipe you'll ever need" #26370. It was good, loved the texture. Next time, I will add a little more raspberry preserves. Thank you for the posting.
