    Amanda Beth's Note:

    I named this for my sister-in-law, Jeni, after our misadventures making ganache. The recipe actually comes from the Pillsbury Cookbook. It's the easiest recipe ever, and is delicious, too! I always put it on my birthday cake. Cook time is chill time.

      I made half a recipe of ganache. Like another reviewer, I didn't follow the directions, but I mainly wanted the amounts of cream to chocolate. I boiled the cream in the microwave in a glass measuring cup (about 1 1/2 minutes on HIGH), then I poured the chocolate chips and butter in the hot cream. I let the mixture sit about 5 minutes, so the chips could melt, then I stirred it all up. I put in fridge to harden, so I could decorate the top of a chocolate peanut butter torte (#355398). It took about an hour to harden enough so I could put it in a ziploc baggie and pipe it on the torte. My husband was eating it out of the measuring cup. Hehe! This is an awesome recipe. Thanks for posting it!

      God Bless You for posting this fabulous EASY recipe. I have looked high & low for an easy ganache recipe and finally found it here. The only thing I did differently was to let it set out in the pan for just about half hour and then poured on my cake. Thanks once again for taking the time to post this.

      Excellent! I frosted the cake with it, then put raspberries on top. Melted the ganache to a liquid consistency and then drizzled it over the top. It got rave reviews from my friends, I will definitely make this again!
