Chocolate Ganache

Chocolate Ganache

Makes 1/2 cup

Pastry chefs use velvety-smooth ganache, made from melted chocolate and cream, as a frosting and filling for cakes and cookies. The kind of chocolate used determines the sweetness and flavor of your ganache always use a good-quality brand.
  • ¼ to ½ cup pureed silken tofu
  • ½ cup chopped semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (2 ¾ oz.), or semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Place tofu in small bowl. (The smaller amount of tofu makes a fudgy, dark ganache; the larger amount makes more of a creamy spread.)
  2. Melt chocolate in top of double boiler set over barely simmering (not boiling) water. When half-melted, remove from heat and stir until creamy. With a rubber spatula, scrape melted chocolate into tofu and stir until well blended. Use immediately or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 4 days. Bring to room temperature before using.
