Super Easy Chocolate Ganache - Dairy & Soy Free

Oh my Ganache!!!  With only 4 simple ingredients, this is a SUPER easy and fast recipe to make.  Especially if you have a food processor.  The next time I make this, I will take more pictures of the process and of the ganache in it's fluid state.   Ganache can be poured over cakes, used to coat cake-pops (as shown above), poured into pie fillings or over something like my Cherry Vanilla Almond Bars.

And it can even be eaten right out of the jar for a quick pick-me up treat.  It's like eating a small chocolate
candy but, WAY better (and healthier too)!  And you can add a dolop of it to your coffee for an intense mocha treat. Toss a little in your smoothie or even in your oatmeal.  Wherever you might enjoy some deep chocolate flavor. 

You could also warm some back up and drizzle over dairy free ice cream, bananas or fresh strawberries. (Chocolate covered strawberries anyone?)

This recipe is a very intense, dark, bittersweet chocolate flavor.  And best of all it's dairy free and soy free (hard to find with chocolate).  And it only has 4 simple ingredients.  Easy Peasy.
