Can you make chocolate ganache with milk instead of cream?

I am making this insanely rich chocolate cake (it has like a kilo of chocolate in it!) but I didnt get enough cream and now I dont have any for the ganache. Would it turn out ok if I just made it with milk? Its not like the cake needs to be any richer…

Answer #1

Yes. You can use milk, or white chocolate.

However, milk could make the chocolate seize and separate.

Answer #2

If the chocolate does seize and separate, I have heard that you can “fix” chocolate that has seized, by adding either shortening or butter.

Answer #3

Awesome, thanks so much! I really cant bothered buying cream

Answer #4

No problem, glad I could help! :)
