Recipe notes:

  1. Cream: Do not use half-and-half, whole milk, or any other liquid because the ganache won’t be set up properly. For a non-dairy alternative, use canned coconut milk. See recipe note.
  2. Chocolate: You can use semi-sweet chocolate (recommended), bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. 


Best Chocolate to Use in Chocolate Ganache

The best chocolate for chocolate ganache is a pure chocolate baking bar, Pure chocolate is sold in 4-ounce bars in the baking aisle, Do not use chocolate chips because they will not melt into the best ganache consistency. If you must use chocolate chips, make sure they are higher quality chocolate such as Ghirardelli brand semi-sweet chocolate chips.

For the traditional chocolate ganache

I recommend using semi-sweet chocolate. This is the most commonly found chocolate in the baking aisle. Semi-sweet chocolate contains 35 – 45% cacao and is usually sweeter than bittersweet or dark varieties and darker than milk chocolate and white chocolate.

TIP: The best tool for chopping chocolate is a large serrated knife. The grooves help chip away the hard chocolate bar texture 


These 2 Tricks Make Chocolate Ganache Even Easier

  1. Here are my 2 super simple tricks that make ganache even easier to make.
  2. Chop the chocolate as fine as possible. The finer you chop the chocolate, the quicker it melts with the cream. If the chocolate is in large chunks, it won’t fully melt. 
  3. Pour the warm cream over the chopped chocolate and let it sit before stirring. After you pour the warm heavy cream over the chopped chocolate, let it sit for a few minutes. During this time, the chocolate will soften and begin to melt which means that you won’t need to over-stir it.

Piped Chocolate Ganache:

Choose chocolate ganache if you’re craving a pure chocolate topping for your desserts. Once it cools and sets, you can pipe it onto your favorites including chocolate cupcakes  



Whipped Ganache

Let’s take chocolate ganache 1 step further. Did you know that you can beat ganache into a whipped frosting consistency? Think whipped buttercream, but not as sweet or heavy. Once the chocolate ganache cools completely, whip it on medium-high speed until light in color and fluffy in texture, about 4 minutes. 




Chop the chocolate bar with the help of a sharp serrated knife



Place finely chopped chocolate into a heatproof bowl or metal bowl 



Heat cream on the stovetop just simmering if it’s boiling the cream is too hot and could separate or even burn the chocolate

Once you see a little simmer around the edges, Turn off the heat and immediately pour the warm cream over the chocolate 



Let the two sit for a few minutes before stirring  



 Stir until smooth

After you stir the chocolate and warm cream together



Use the ganache right away as a fruit dip or drizzle on top of cakes, cupcakes, pound cakes, ice cream, and more



But if you wait about 2 hours and let it cool completely, the ganache can be scooped with a spoon, spread onto desserts, or piped with piping tips. 


Chocolate ganache is ready to use in a recipe, transfer into the bottle or container 

Chocolate ganache can be stored in the fridge

Lately, I’ve posted homemade khoya other than falooda sev at home in my previous post

Ingredients used in the recipe:
Milk: I prefer using full-fat milk for making this recipe as this has more nutritional energy per cup of milk_but can be used skimmed milk too, in my opinion, making a drink of full-fat milk is more beneficial for overall health than skimmed or low-fat milk
Falooda sev: I prepared falooda sev from cornstarch for a falooda milkshake but if you don’t have sufficient time to make it at home then alternatively can use colored vermicelli
Khoya: I will prefer homemade khoya to store-bought as the taste of making khoya at home is the best_homemade ingredients are much better and tasteful than those outside

Jelly: this recipe can be used desirable taste and color of jelly
Basil seeds: traditionally added in falooda ice cream or milk drink these seeds content on the high fiber along may benefit your health
