Dark Chocolate Orange Ganache is infused orange dark chocolate ganache that makes a wonderful frosting for cakes and even as just a dip.
I was thinking very hard on what to make when I suddenly remembered discussing with Gayathri on the ganache she made. She was talking about the new ganache she made by infusing orange. I thought I will do that as I was sure my kids will love this.
