I need to make ganache, but I only have cocoa powder. Does anyone know how I can do this? TIA!

I looked through all my pastry text books, and found nothing on this subject. I doubt it can be done, as the cocoa butter is missing, and that is an important element in getting the ganache to set as it cools.

I think a fudge frosting is the closest you're going to come to it with cocoa powder.

I have never used chocolate in my genache only cocoa powder. On the side off the Hershey's cocoa powder box there are instructions to use cocoa powder and crisco. 3 TBSP cocoa powder to 1 TBSP Shortening equals 1 oz

It has always worked out well for me. With my genache, I add sugar to taste, but while the mix is still hot. HTH icon_smile.gif

Ok, so I mix all of this stuff together? Or I melt it together? It tells you the ratios but not what to do.

Put the cocoa powder in the bowl with the crisco and add the hot cream to it, use it like you would regular chocolate. Let me know how it worked.
