I've been learning how to make different baked goods for a friend of mine with celiac and soy-intolerance. I saw a recipe for GF eclairs and i'd love to try it, but the ganache has stopped me as i cant seem to find any chocolate bars, chips, etc that does not contain soy products and i dont really want to go through the trouble of ordering some online. Instead, i was wondering if it would be possible to make chocolate on my own using cocoa powder, sugar, and whatever else OR if i could make a ganache using the straight cocoa powder and something else. any ieas?? thanks!
cocoa powder ganache?

Instead of trying to use cocoa powder, I would suggest a chocolate that doesn't have soy lecithin, because you do want the cocoa butter to create the proper texture. Many grocery stores now carry Green & Black chocolate, which makes bars without soy (check their website), but there are more. Try doing a Google search for chocolate without soy, there are quite a few.
