Chocolate ganache is something that you can use in so many ways! You can use it as a dipping sauce – dip pretzels, cookies, crackers, fruit and more. You can also use it inside cakes, such as a filling in between layers, a topping on top, or even in frosting to flavor it. You can also use it as a drizzle on top of biscotti, brownies, muffins and more.
My traditional Chocolate Ganache is something I use in many recipes. And my traditional Chocolate Ganache recipe uses both milk and dark chocolate. But, I was recently making a cake and I wanted to add chocolate ganache to it, but I was out of dark chocolate. All I had was milk chocolate in my pantry, so I decided to make a Milk Chocolate Ganache.
So, I am sharing this Milk Chocolate Ganache recipe as it’s a completely different flavor profile than my usual chocolate ganache. And it’s really good! It’s a lighter flavor, and a little more sweet, and I think you guys will really like it. Plus, I have an amazing cake recipe that I’m using this in coming in the next couple weeks! Grab the recipe below for my homemade Milk Chocolate Ganache.
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
