Whether used as a topping, glaze, icing, or filling, this milk chocolate ganache is a versatile and delectable addition to your culinary repertoire.
Ingredients & Substitutions
1 bag (11.5 ounces or approximately 326 grams) of milk chocolate chips. Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate to suit your preferences.
¾ cup (6 ounces or approximately 180 milliliters) of heavy cream. Ensure it has at least 30% fat for that luxurious texture.
How to Make Creamy Indulgence Chocolate Drizzle
To embark on the journey of creating this delightful milk chocolate ganache, gather a small saucepan and a heat-safe bowl. Pour the milk chocolate chips into the bowl and set it aside. Meanwhile, heat the heavy cream in the saucepan over medium-high heat.
Bring the cream to a gentle simmer, ensuring it doesn’t burn. Carefully pour the hot cream over the bowl of chocolate chips and slowly stir the ingredients until the chocolate is completely melted. For an extra creamy texture, allow the chocolate to sit for a minute before stirring.
How to Refrigerate Creamy Indulgence Chocolate Drizzle
If you find yourself with leftover ganache, storing it for later use is a breeze. Refrigerate it by covering the bowl with plastic wrap, ensuring it’s labeled and dated. Safely store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
When ready to use the refrigerated ganache, let it come to room temperature by placing it out for about an hour. Alternatively, you can gently heat it in the microwave in 20-second increments or use the double boiler method to soften it. Note that the ganache becomes thick and solid when refrigerated.
How to Freeze Creamy Indulgence Chocolate Drizzle
For more extended storage, freeze the ganache in a freezer-safe, resealable container. Cover the container with plastic wrap and seal it with the lid. Label and date the container, and it will remain delicious for up to 3 months.
When ready to use the frozen ganache, thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. Allow it to come to room temperature, heat it in the microwave in 15-second increments, or use the double boiler method. Avoid refreezing thawed ganache; instead, store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week.
