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.
You can store ganache:
- At room temperature (in cool climates only) for up to 2 days
- 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)
