Question on ganche....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Is It possible to temper a ganche and use it to cover things such as nuts, candy, jellies......

 

Like for example: to make a mint chocolate ganache and use it to cover a lemon jellybean? I want to temper the ganache so it can have shine and crack/crunch when you first bite into it.

 

I normally temper regular chocolate for shine and crack/crunch, but i would like to do the same with a flavored ganache.

 

Thanks.

No.

 

When you make a ganache, you are adding over 50 %" liquid to the chocolate.  Ganache will never harden like pure chocolate, which is why it is ganache, and not couverture.

 

Hope this helps
