How to Make White Chocolate Ganache

Ganache can be used for cake, cupcakes, truffles, or any delicious treat you make that you need to add a little gooey goodness to. Or, better yet, let it stand alone. While you may want to eat it right out of the bowl, we recommend pairing it with strawberries or another bite-size fruit for dipping. The best part? It can be made in under half an hour, so it's an easy addition to your dinner party when you have guests to impress.

If you followed the recipe, your results should be smooth and tasty! However, wish it was a little whiter to complement your dessert or just look prettier with your plate of fruit? You can add a little food grade titanium dioxide to lighten it up. Be sure to utilize an appropriate ratio, or it will cause your ganache to have a runny consistency, rather than a perfect glaze.
