6 oz. unsalted Plugra butter
4.5 oz. sour cream
9 oz. powdered sugar
3 oz. unsweetened Patric Chocolate
1.5 oz. Patric Chocolate 70% Madagascar, Sambirano Valley


Method: Melt butter in large pot or kettle. Put sour cream and sugar in bowl of mixer fitted with whisk attachment. Bring butter just to a boil; add chocolates. Lower heat; stir continuously to prevent scorching. Bring mixture to 170ºF. Add hot chocolate to sour cream/sugar in mixer; emulsify. Mixing slowly at first, scrape down well; mix on speed No. 3 for 3 minutes (mixture should be completely homogenous without “breaking” and well-emulsified). Store, covered, in container at room temperature; place piece of plastic wrap directly on top of ganache to prevent crust forming on surface. As ganache cools, it will thicken.
