Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in a large stainless steel bowl.
In a large high sided saucepan, heat cream over medium high heat, stirring frequently, until it starts to boil. At this point the cream will want to boil over so keep an eye on it! Immediately remove from heat and pour over chopped chocolate.
Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Cool completely and then store in refrigerator. Ganache can be reheated in a stainless steel bowl over hot, but not boiling, water.
