This vegan chocolate ganache is rich and flavorful, prepared with coconut milk instead of the heavy cream used in traditional recipes. For best results, use a high-quality dairy-free chocolate.
Makes about 2 cups
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes
- 16 ounces good quality dark dairy-free chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 1 15-ounce can coconut milk (not lite varieties)
- 1/2 t. vanilla
1. Place the coarsely chopped dark chocolate in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the coconut milk until bubbles just begin to appear around the edges and steam rises from the surface. Pour the hot coconut milk over the chopped chocolate and let stand without stirring for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, stir the chocolate-coconut milk mixture until glossy and smooth (this will take about 2 minutes of gentle stirring). Add the vanilla extract and stir until incorporated. Use warm or slightly cooled.
