To celebrate Valentine’s Day we made mini chocolate ganache pies with graham cracker crust in our Jr and Sr Chef classes!  These were so much fun to make, and our kitchen smelled like chocolate-heaven.  You can adorn them with fresh whipped cream, or to celebrate the holiday decorate with a little powdered sugar and candy hearts.  So sweet!
