I need to make a dairy-free chocolate ganache but I'd rather not potentially waste time and effort on failed attempts.  ;)  Has anyone tried ganache with almond milk rather than cream?  If not, is there a good recipe out there for that?

AWhat about coconut cream? I don't think almond milk would have enough fat.

I used coconut milk.  Use the same amount as cream.

Coconut milk, got it!  Is there a coconut taste when it's all said and done?  I know coconut is kind of a love it or hate it thing.  I've never seen coconut cream, I'm about to do some googling.  Thanks everyone!

AI haven't made ganache with it.

I can tell you that I hate shaved coconut with every fiber of my being but I have no issues whatsoever with coconut milk or cream.

Coconut milk is not going to take over the chocolate.  It blends beautifully.

You should be able to find it in your grocery store or look in a section where they have Thai specialty food. 
Thai Kitchens is the brand I used.
