Hello to all,
I am a newbie to working with chocolate. I have looked everywhere with no succes. My question is: does chocolate ganache ever 'set'?
Does it ever become "not sticky"?

Any help is much appreciated!

Thank you icon_wink.gif

The answer is no. If you touch the ganache, it will mar the surface. The recipe I use is 9 ounces good quality chocolate, 8 ounces heavy cream, and a tablespoon of butter.

Different ganache recipes may behave differently though. icon_smile.gif

I'll try your recipe next time. Sounds delish.
