Chocolate Raspberry Ganache ShotsIf you are looking for the one ROCK STAR dessert to serve at your next party, Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Shots is it.

These Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Shots were absolutely the hit of the graduation and confirmation Shot Glass Mini-Servings party we hosted a couple weeks ago. These little cups of heaven have a crust made of crushed chocolate graham crackers, butter, and honey, are layered with rich chocolate ganache, then topped with a fresh raspberry.

The small serving is perfect because these are so rich.

Ganache

Making Ganache is not as hard as it seems. I always get a bit nervous melting chocolate, but if you follow the directions in the recipe, you will be just fine. This comes out silky, rich, and dark.

Put a bit of the crust mixture into the bottom of each cup and press down slightly. Allow to set in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes while making the ganache.

We used a measuring cup to pour the ganache into each cup. You could also pour it into a Ziplock and snip off a corner, but the mixture is very runny when warm, so we found pouring it from a measuring cup worked better.
