I have TONS of leftover ganache...as of right now I dont have any cake orders that will need it.

What can I do with it?
Can I freeze it?
And since it has cream it how long til it spoils in the fridge?

TIA

Last time I had some left over I put it in the fridge to harden, then I rolled them into little balls to make truffles. You can cover w/ powdered sugar, cocoa or any topping...I put caramel on some. They were delish!

Do you get CC magazine? This month had a whole spread of things to do with leftover ganache.

There's no such thing as leftover ganache! Hahaha!! icon_lol.gif But seriously, firm up in fridge and turn into truffles as mentioned. That is the BEST use that I have ever come across. Sooooo good you could cry!

OH OH OH!! For dessert can we smear some buttercream on the rest of the cookies? That is the food of the Gods!! Sugar cookies with buttercream will get me to do just about anything for you!!

I leave it at room temperature and my husband stirs a heaping spoonful into his coffee in the morning. If he's in the mood he adds a splash of amaretto!!

Freeze it for future cakes or use it to make truffles.

Besides the typical truffles mentioned here, you could also mix with cake batter and buttercream and make cake balls/truffles.

Thanks for the ideas everyone...silly I did not realize that cold it is essentially a big bowl of truffle!!!

My 17 year old girls and I sat down with the bowl and three big ol spoons....nope...not a problem with leftovers anymore!

DELISH!!!
