Creative uses for leftover Ganache?

Hey everyone...

We have about a pint of leftover ganache in our fridge.

Are there any ideas on how we can use this as an ingredient for things other then candy or ice cream topping?

Would it be possible to turn this into some sort of chocolate souffle???

  1. You could ice cupcakes or a cake -- just warm the ganache slightly and beat some powdered sugar into it.

    1. How about making a layered cake. Maybe cake, ganache, fruit. YUM

      1. I forget which blog it was, where this idea comes from (maybe Chocolate & Zucchini?) - but you can either make or buy some cookies and make cookie sandwiches with ganache as filling.

        1. I'm pretty sure if I had a spoon and a pint of ganache, I wouldn't have any problem figuring out what to do with it.

            ditto. wonder how long it's been sitting in the OP's fridge?

          2. How about some truffles? Roll the chilled ganache into balls and then in cocoa or chopped nuts or whatever appeals to you. You might even warm it slightly and whip in some rum or Chambord etc. then chill and roll into truffles.
