I made way more than I need and don't want the ganache to go to waste if I can help it. Can I freeze it and not have it lose it's qualitty?

Thanks!

Yes! Put it in a zip-top freezer bag and squeeze all of the air out.

When it's time to use it, thaw in refrigerator. Taste a bit. If the texture is off at all, just remelt on slow burts in the microwave, stirring between, then allow to reset.

Yes! I do it all the time!
I put it in a plastic freezer bag
Then when I need small quantities I just cut a piece and put in in the microwave.
For instance, I make a lot profiteroles. I freeze then too. If someone comes over to dinner, I take some profiteroles out, and top them with warm ganache icon_razz.gif
