Whipped Chocolate Ganache Frosting

Most people think that making ganache is a complex process when its actually the easiest icing there is! This my really easy chocolate ganache recipe. It is not the traditional dark ganache that you see on cakes. Its a lighter whipped version which tastes almost like chocolate buttercream! I added more cream, because I wanted a lighter color to complement my Chocolate and Orange Marble Cake. You can ofcourse add more chocolate to make it darker.

Ingredients:

Chocolate and Orange Marble Cake

Merry Christmas to all of you!!

All I’m thinking these days is about making things that are festive looking and of course not too time consuming !

I used a Kinnow, which is primarily grown in India and is really abundant this season. They taste like oranges, only a tad…

Fudgy Chocolate Bars !

Hola my readers!!

Merry Christmas to all of you! It must be a bit early for most of you but I’m in a different time zone, so here’s wishing you a life full of Sugar Spice and All Things Nice! ❤

It’s a festive season and I love to make food to celebrate that! I made these yummy, Fudgy Chocolate Bars full of marshmallows and other good stuff. Quite honestly they look I slaved all day in the kitchen for them but NO, they were surprisingly quick! You can make these bars and refrigerated them. I can’t really say how last they long because mine finished the next day 🙂 Greedy crowd I’ve got here 😉 But they should remain ‘fresh’ for as long as a week. These bars require really basic ingredients but the end result is so mesmerizing and impressive! These bars are a good 4PM snack or…
