4 ounces semisweet chocolate chopped in small pieces
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 tablespoons heavy cream
3 1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla, cognac, or cognac vanilla


Combine chocolate and cream in a heavy bowl over simmering water. Beat until chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.

Remove from heat and add to the confectioners' sugar in a mixer or processor. Add vanilla; mix thoroughly.

Spoon into a buttered 8" square pan. Refrigerate until it is set, at least several hours or overnight.

Cut into squares. Store in a tight tin box and keep refrigerated.

To make truffles: When the ganache has cooled enough to handle, form the mixture with 2 teaspoons or your fingers into small balls. Roll in cocoa or finely ground pecans. Store in refrigerator.
