problems with my ganache

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I made the "Chocolate Ganache I "recipe thats on this site and I am not sure if something went wrong. When it is at room temperature the ganache was very very loose.

Since I was making truffles I did put the ganache in the fridge I didnt let it set at room temperature. Maybe that did something to it? This is only the second time making ganache, I always had the impression that when it was set at room temperature the consistancy of the ganache would be that of a peanut butter consistancy, am I correct?

I do not believe it was too hot in my house, we usually have the AC running when it gets bad.

Is it supposed to be really loose, it wasnt even the consistancy of the canned icing in the stores, was really bad..

I appreciate the help icon_smile.gif

I use 1 pound of chocolate and 2 tbl butter and 1 cup of heavy cream with 2 tbls of corn syrup with the heavy cream. I bring the cream to boil and pour over finely chopped chocolate and cover bowl with plastic wrap for a few minutes , then whisk till smooth. I usually put the ganache in fridge and whisk periodically till it the thickness I want. If it gets too thick you can microwave at 1/2 power for 20 second intervals. Did you use semisweet chocolate(milk and white take less liquid)?

Melt some more chocolate and stir it in completely.
