Chocolate Ganache is used for many things. I use it to fill cupcakes, ice cakes, make tarts and dip fruits in. It will not harden like regular melted chocolate because the cream helps it stay soft.
It is very versatile and you can use it for a lot of different things. For a fun flavor variation, I put just a pinch of coffee grounds in the ganache after it is melted to give it a coffee flavor. The "Chocolate Coffee Ganache" is what I used to fill the Pomegranate Cupcake
