chocolate ganache recipe

I’ve been making dairy-free, vegan chocolate ganache for years and didn’t think about sharing it here until recently. The recipe is as simple as can be with only two ingredients –dark chocolate and coconut milk.

Traditional chocolate ganache is generally made with chocolate and heavy cream, however, my version is dairy-free and vegan, using coconut milk in place of the heavy cream. I haven’t tried making this with other types of dairy-free milk so I’m not sure if that will work. If you do find a substitute, please stop back by and let us know about it!

Chocolate Ganache

  1. Combine coconut milk and chocolate in a small saucepan
  2. Heat over very low heat
  3. Stir until melted
  4. Remove from heat
  5. Drizzle over ice cream, brownies or cake

Makes 1/3 cup ganache

I love using this vegan Chocolate Ganache on baked goods; when cooled it firms up and hardens into a chocolate shell type topping. The boys and their friends love this ganache drizzled over brownies. With caramel sauce. But that’s another story, or recipe, which I’ll be posting next week, so stay tuned.

Here are some of my dessert recipes on which to drizzle this chocolate ganache:
