1 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips, or chopped chocolate bar*

¾ cup full fat coconut cream*

*My favorite sugar & dairy-free chocolate brands are Lakanto, Choc Zero, and Lily’s. 



1. Place chocolate in a small glass bowl (not plastic), and set aside. If opting to use a chocolate baking bar, chop the chocolate bar into chocolate chip sized chunks using a long serrated knife.

2. In a small saucepan, warm the coconut cream on your stove-stop, over medium-high heat, until it is evenly heated and simmering along the edges.

3. Pour the hot coconut cream over chocolate chunks/chips. Let rest for a few minutes, allowing the chocolate to soften and melt.

4. With a spatula, stir chocolate until mixture is smooth!


Ganache-Use Options:

*To use as a dip: Serve warm.

*To use as a drizzle: While warm, drizzle over cupcakes, muffins, loaves, cakes, or brownies!

*To use as a filling: Wait until the chocolate is room temperature, and pipe into your muffins or cupcakes.

*To use as a soft icing: Chill ganache in the fridge until it's a pudding consistency (1-2 hours). Mix on medium-high until it lightly fluffs. Scoop into a baggie, cut a small hole into one corner, and “pipe” onto baked goods for a yummy icing. Using actual piping tips is not recommended, as this frosting is very soft -But oh so yummy!
