This designer dessert, made with three types of chocolate, doubles as a conversation starter

“Christmas at home in Switzerland is cozy and special. Being in the mountains reminds me of my childhood. When I was a child, I was always very excited about Christmas dinner. My mother would decorate the table with Lindt chocolates and I’d often try to steal them before dinner. Chocolate has always been a big part of my Christmas. I really enjoy spending time with family, given my busy work and travel schedule. I love to see the sparkle in my children’s eyes when we light up the tree and then go and play outdoors when it starts to snow.”

If ganache becomes too cool, it will be difficult to work with. Warm it gently over low heat to ensure a smooth final texture.
