Chocolate Sauce

????

IMG

Chocolate sauce, also called ganache, is the ultimate finish to almost any dessert item. Semi-sweet chocolate melted down with cream and sugar is undeniably decadent. The glossy appearance and deep color are eye-catching, the aroma is mouthwatering, the texture is smooth and the taste can only be described as chocolatey. The chocolate itself is there for flavor but the cream is there to give the sauce the fatty element it needs to achieve that smooth, rich texture. Chocolate sauce is certainly one of the most popular dessert toppings but very few know how this sauce came about. Chocolate dates back to 600 A.D., a time when cocoa beans were used as currency in the Mayan and Aztec culture and featured in a drink believed to encourage wealth and power. Over the span of many years, the beans were used to make chocolate bars, cocoa powder and made its way around the world. Facts about the first chocolate sauce recipe are brief but we do know that it was created around 1850. Some say the Swiss are responsible while others credit the renowned Parisian Patisserie Siraudin.
