"This ganache makes a super easy frosting that is great for when you have leftover sour cream in the fridge and chocolate chips on hand -- delicious over almond flavored cupcakes!"

  1. Place the chocolate chips into a glass or metal bowl, and set over the top of a pan of barely simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and transfer the chocolate to a medium bowl.
  2. Add the sour cream and vanilla; beat with an electric mixture until smooth and creamy. If you let it cool down too much it will set up, so frost your cake while it is still liquid, or reheat before using.

I turned to this recipe when I needed to make a ganache & didn't have any cream. It does have a "sour cream", less sweet taste to it. But it's actually pretty nice! and if you pair it with a ...

I agree with a previous reviewer that the sour cream is overwhelming. I added sugar to it and that improved it, but it was still too sour.

I tried this last week and it was just wonderful. I melted the chocolate chips in the microwave though. I turned on great. Thanks for the recipe KatieMac!
