    Sour cream adds a tangy note to a ganache icing. This is perfect whether on cakes or cupcakes or muffins.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 20 

    • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
    • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

    Directions
    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Place the chocolate chips into a glass or metal bowl, and set over the top of a pan of barely simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and transfer the chocolate to a medium bowl.
    2. Add the sour cream and vanilla; beat with an electric mixture until smooth and creamy. If you let it cool down too much it will set up, so ice your cake while it is still liquid, or reheat before using.

    I was looking for a recipe for classic ganache to top a chocolate cheesecake with and came across this recipe. Since sweetened sour cream is a classic plain cheescake topping I gave this one a try for my chocolate cheesecake. It was the PERFECT compliment to the rich cheesecake. Dense but not too heavy and sweet but refreshing in compliment to the intense chocolate of the cheesecake. EXCELLENT - thanks for a great recipe!  -  13 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    used white chocolate instead and turned out great! i let it cool for a bit and used it for a filling for a carrot cake and then topped off the cake with a cream cheese icing. absolutely fabulous! definitely will be using this again!  -  26 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Not at all what I had hoped for. The sour cream totally overpowerd the chocolate to the point that you almost couldn't taste it. I didn't even use this, I was so disappointed.  -  16 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
