This is a delicious and easy vegan chocolate ganache. I am making some gluten-free, dairy-free cupcakes this week and part of the recipe calls for vegan ganache. I have also made traditional ganache with dairy in it.
This is such a simple creamy recipe and it only takes a few minutes to make. First, you have to decide what type of dairy-free or Vegan milk you will use. You have a choice of soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, or coconut milk. Depending on what flavor cupcake, or what your allergy might be is what will determine which substitute to use.

Today I am going with coconut milk. It’s only 3 ingredients, so it will be pretty easy and simple to make. Almond Milk will be just as delicious. Just what I like when it’s a Sunday afternoon and I don’t want to spend all my time in the kitchen.

Can you Freeze Ganache?
This vegan chocolate ganache is so delicious, it will be gone before you know it. It will, however, freeze well in an airtight container if there are leftovers.
