2 methods of making this Sugar Free Chocolate ganache recipe

Method 1

In this first method, we use a double boiler. A bowl sitting on top of a saucepan can also work as a double boiler. Always use a heat-resistant bowl, not plastic, as it can melt over heat, especially on a gas stovetop.

Bring water to a boil in the bottom pan of the double boiler. Pour the cream into the top pan and heat to a simmer.

Add the sugar-free chocolate chips to the hot cream and stir continuously while melting.

Once the chocolate has completely melted, remove the pan from the heat.

Use as desired.

** Be careful not to allow any water or steam to get into the sauce.**

Method 2

This method uses a microwave along with a microwave-safe bowl.

Pour the cream into the microwave-safe bowl. Heat the cream until warm to hot. I recommend using 15 to 30-second bursts and checking in between. Do not scorch the cream. Stir it between heating to heat evenly.

Add the sugar-free chocolate chips and stir. Heat using 15 to 30-second bursts while stirring in between heating.

When the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth, the sugar free ganache is ready to use.

Choosing the Sugar-Free Chocolate

Sugar-Free chocolate chips come in dark, semi-sweet, milk chocolate and white. Choose the flavour that suits your preference or application. For example, dipping strawberries looks attractive with a dark chocolate coating. Using dark chocolate means

Uses for our Sugar-Free Ganache recipe

This recipe makes delicious frosting. Allow the sugar-free ganache to cool until it is the spreading consistency you like, and frost cookies and cakes.

Use our sugar-free ganache as a dip. This Sugar Free Ganache recipe makes a fabulous dip for chocolate-covered strawberries. Dip strawberries into the warm ganache and allow to set on a piece of waxed paper. This is also a great dip for cookies. Make sugar-free shortbread cookies and shape them into fingers and dip the ends into the ganache and let set on waxed paper or a wire rack.

Use as a flood. A chocolate ganache flood is simply pouring the warm ganache over the surface of a cookie or cake. This is ideal for brownies but also works great on cookies. Allow the ganache to cool enough to be thick but still pourable. For cookies, pour a small amount onto the top of the coolie and rotate the cookie to allow the ganache to spread over the surface. When pouring as a flood, pour a small amount and as it spreads add small amounts until you have the desired appearance.

Make Sugar Free Ganache thicker or thinner

If you want a thinner ganache to use as a drizzle, reduce the amount of chocolate chips added. Add 3/4 cup of sugar free chocolate chips and add more as desired.

To make this ganache thicker, for making scoopable truffles, add more chocolate chips. Start by adding a couple of extra tablespoons of chocolate chips and stop when you have the desired consistency. Remember, the ganache will thicken when cooled.

**NOTE** When altering the ingredient amount, remember that the nutritional information will also be altered. **

How to store Sugar Free Ganache

If you have made our Sugar Free ganache recipe and you are not using it right away, it should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This ganache will keep well refrigerated for about 4-5 days. Sugar-Free Ganache can also be frozen, for up to 3 weeks, but for best results use fresh. Do not store at room temperature as it contains dairy.
