Transform dreamy, creamy Chocolate Ganache into a spreadable frosting! This stuff is a little slice of chocolate heaven and goes great on all types of baked goods!
I know, I know, I just posted a Chocolate Ganache recipe, but trust me when I tell you that Chocolate Ganache Frosting deserves its own moment in the spotlight. Straight-up ganache is shiny, glaze-like and pourable or even dunkable. The frosting version contains a few extra ingredients and it gets to spend some time chillin' in the fridge, making it spreadable.
This stuff is like heaven, you guys. I love ganache, but this frosting takes creamy chocolate to a whole new level. I made a few batches of Chocolate Cupcakes this week and after spreading this frosting on most of them, my willpower was gone. This Chocolate Ganache Frosting wins out over EVERY SINGLE other frosting on the planet for me. Yum yum YUM.
What is the difference between Ganache and Ganache Frosting?
Ganache and Ganache Frosting are made with the same ingredients, but using different ratios of cream to chocolate. Ganache usually refers to a glaze that is drizzled over baked goods and ganache frosting refers to a spreadable frosting or filling for baking goods. Allowing ganache to cool in the fridge will make it thicker (much like the frosting), but it also causes it to lose its “drippy” quality that ganache is known for.
This frosting works great in a piping bag and it's also fun to spread using an offset spatula. The creaminess is almost indescribable. Are you understanding how in love I am? Good. Thanks for being here, my friends. Have a great rest of your week!
