Oh, ganache, you amazingly decadent creation, you. Perfect combination of two of my favorite foods: chocolate and cream. And also the reason that hostess cupcakes exist- a treat denied to me in my childhood because my parents worried about things like childhood diabetes and didn't enjoy the sugar-fueled destruction that followed the eating of excess sugar (the equivalent of a hair band's cocaine-fueled trashing of a hotel room, to give you an idea).
Now that I'm an adult, I can buy my own and enjoy the roller coaster ride that is a massive spike in blood sugar that somehow crashes on my hips. Someday I'll make my own, but until I have more self control, I'll stick to my once-a-month drug store checkout line impulse buys. Ganache, you can do no wrong.
It's really great to have an easy recipe like this filed away in your mind- it's so simple, but can elevate even a plain old cupcake to cult-love status. Just two ingredients is all you need to make heavenly cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes, and anything else that could be made better with a gooey chocolate shell. Which is everything.
