The white chocolate ganache is a variation of the classic dark chocolate ganache. It is a dense, smooth chocolate texture that can be either enjoyed on its own or to garnish desserts, cakes and cupcakes, or to create chocolate truffles. It is very easy to make: you will just need to combine the chocolate with the warm whipped cream and mix thoroughly.

Once cooled, you’ll work on the mixture with an electric whisk until fluffy and smooth. While the original version is characterized by its bitter aftertaste, this white chocolate ganache is definitely sweeter. You can also use this ganache to garnish other desserts, whether homemade or store-bought, or to create new desserts altogether.
