Has anyone ever tried making chocolate ganache with 1/2 & 1/2 instead of heavy cream?
Sorry, but what is 1/2 and 1/2 please explain??
I'm sorry. Half and Half is 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk. My husband uses it in his coffee and we always have it in the house. Of course, it's the last minute and I decided to make a ganache frosting for brownies and don't have heavy cream in the house. I may just give it a whirl and see what happens.
I use 1/2 & 1/2 regularly in my choc ganache if it is a quickie, for cuppies, or a small 8-9" round. Works just the same, only needs a little more whipping.
Thank you, mommicakes. I tried it and it did work fine. It came out a little softer - more like frosting - and didn't harden up as much as ganache. Still tasted great and will do it again - maybe using less liquid!
Here's a recipe for blender ganache:
(Uses evaporated milk.)
