Cocoa Ganache Recipe

Cocoa Ganache recipe

This Cocoa Ganache recipe is super easy to make and doesn’t harden solid after chilling. Cocoa ganache is a great alternative to melted chocolate ganache and tastes incredibly delicious & sweet. It’s semi-firm texture creates a great cake topping although cooling this to room temperature is a must (otherwise your frosting can get quite messy.) No worries though, your ganache will not get stiff after cooling completely to room temperature (which is a great thing about this ganache) it will just form a film over the top that will go away once you whisk the mixture again. This ganache gets thicker as it sits, so if your wanting a thicker coat, cooling is key. And of coarse regular unsweetened cocoa will work, so feel free to use cocoa of your preference.
