White Chocolate Ganche

 250g White chocolate, chopped
 1/3 cup cream

Combine chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.
Stir with a metal spoon until smooth. Remove bowl from heat.
Set aside at room temperature to cool, stirring occasionally, until ganache is thick and spreadable.

For Mint: add 3-4 drops of peppermint essence, to taste, and 1-2 drops of green colouring
