Use a spat­ula to stir mix­ture in a sin­gle di­rec­tion un­til smooth. If lumps of choco­late re­main, place bowl over a sim­mer­ing pot of wa­ter and con­tinue stir­ring un­til choco­late is com­pletely melted. Make sure wa­ter does not touch base of bowl. Let ganache rest at room tem­per­a­ture for 1 hr or un­til firm be­fore us­ing.

Place but­ter­cream in a bowl and grad­u­ally mix in straw­berry purée. Do not add more purée than sug­gested amount as cream will be­come too soft.
