Simple Ganache -
disclaimer - I don't know what real ganache tastes like, this is my version.

1/2 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips ( use the healthiest option you can find - preferably without HFCS or soy)(you can also use a fair trade chocolate bar or 2)
1/4 cup milk of your choice - I use coconut milk

Melt on stove at about medium heat in small pan stirring constantly until smooth. Pour over cake. Top with REAL whipping cream, add strawberries if you have them.

My kids no longer want frosting from a plastic tub - it is this or nothing. Smart kids!

  1. oh my gosh, this sounds so easy and yummy, especially with the coconut milk.

    i alway whip up real cream but rarely bake. licking the beaters is my daughter's favorite thing:)

  2. I never would have thought of using coconut milk! I usually use cream. I adore everything coconut, so your version of ganache is the next one I'll make! Thanks.

  7. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually kill fat by eating Coconut Fat (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
