Usually found in candies and ice cream, this classic pairing here becomes ganache that can be eaten as is or used to stuff caramel apples.

Game plan: This ganache can also be used as a tart filling (pour the just-made mixture into a baked tart shell), or turned into truffles (let the ganache set up, scoop it out with a melon baller, and roll in cocoa powder).


  1. 1Combine chocolate and peanut butter in a small heatproof bowl; set aside.
  2. 2Combine cream and vanilla in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, about 3 minutes. Pour cream over chocolate mixture and let sit until chocolate is mostly melted, about 2 minutes.
  3. 3Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Use as desired.
