i stuck some left over chocolate ganache in the fridge earlier this week :) and now i want to use it. it's only about a half cup, i've never had such a small amount leftover. what's the best way to revitalize it? normally, i would just whip the leftover in my mixer or buzz it with a stick blender. do i melt it a bit over hot water. zapping in the microwave seems maybe not such a good idea. :unsure: it's just going to frost some cupcakes so it doesn't matter whether it's fluffy or syrupy. help! :blink:

'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

have you tried sitting on it?

my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

current whisky review: springbank 12 cask strength, batch 7

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

Put the cup in a bowl of hot water, changing the water as it cools, until the ganache is spreadable again or, transfer it to the top of a double boiler or bain marie over low light and let it soften. I have no opinion on microwaves.

I think you should just eat it and make a fresh batch.:)

hot water bath did the trick
