Just like the rest of the world, I went to see Black Panther this past week and was inspired. This chocolate French toast with chocolate ganache recipe is inspired by the latest Marvel movie.

A ganache is store-bought chocolate sauce much better looking cousin, who everyone loves. It only requires a few ingredients to make this amazing versatile sauce. You can use it to make truffles, as a dipping sauce or as a icing for cupcakes.

This recipe is best when enjoyed fresh. You can make the ganache a day in advance.

Fridge: Ganache: After sauce cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days max.
