Ganache is one of the most simple, delicious things you can use to decorate a sweet treat. In its most liquid form, it can be drizzled on cupcakes or cakes; as it cools and thickens, it can used as a firmer dip for donuts or spread over a cheesecake, like our Chocolate Cheesecake. Try whipping some cooled ganache into a thick and rich chocolate frosting to smear between two Double Chocolate-Chip Cookies.
- Yield: 0.75 cup
- Place the chocolate chips in a medium heatproof glass container.
- In a small saucepan, bring the coconut milk and oil to a boil. Pour the hot mixture over top of the chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes before stirring. The ganache will thicken as it cools, so let it cool to the desired consistency before using.
- Ganache may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheated in a double boiler to soften up for use.
