What is White Chocolate Ganache?

White chocolate ganache is a mixture of white chocolate and cream that can be used for dipping or as a sauce, glaze, icing or filling for pastries and cakes. It is usually made with a ratio of 1:1, meaning equal parts chocolate and cream. For a pourable glaze, you will want to use a ratio of 1:2 (1 part chocolate and 2 parts cream) to make the ganache thinner.

Step #1. Prepare the Ingredients

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.
