tonight's dessert -cake

cashew blackberry chocolate cake with a chocolate brandy ganache to be exact. oh and dusted with chocoalte as well.

why cashew, i like cashews, why the other items, why not...?

super easy ganache

9oz good dark chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
1tbl rum, brandy, or cognac etc..

pour the chocolate and alcohol into a bowl. heat the cream until it begins to boil, being careful not to scald it. then pour the cream on the chocolate and whisk for about 5 minutes until smooth and glossy. let this sit for a few minutes to thicken and pour over whatever you desire. if you refrigerate it it will thicken.
