How To Make Chocolate Ganache In A Thermomix

It couldn’t be easier to make a perfectly smooth and sweet ganache in your Thermomix.

Step 1 – Grate The Chocolate

Grate the chocolate finely. This helps it to melt quickly and evenly.

Step 2 – Add The Cream And Heat

Add the cream to the bowl and cook for 2 minutes (see recipe card below for full details).

Thick Or Thin Ganache?

This recipe will make a chocolate ganache that can be poured over a cake and sets to a tacky, sticky texture.

However, you change the texture and thickness of your ganache by altering the chocolate to cream ratio used.

Essentially, using more cream will result in a thinner and more spreadable ganache – the type that you can pour over a cake and let it drip down the sides. For a thin ganache, use 100g chocolate and 200g cream.

Using more chocolate will result in a thicker ganache which is great for making truffles. For a thick ganache, use 200g chocolate and 100g cream.

  • In the fridge for up to 1 month (bring to room temperature before using)
  • By freezing for up to 1 month (allow to defrost before using)
