To make the ganache, melt the chocolate in a microwave for 1 minute and set aside.

Place the cream and tarragon in a pan and gently warm to 80C. Leave to infuse for 30 minutes and strain the cream in the melted chocolate. Gently mix until all the cream has been incorporated, add the butter and gently mix to incorporate, then refrigerate.
