Looks like you have burnt the chocolate as its very lumpy . good for a home style cake

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

This is very helpful, and the pictures looks chocolatey and delicious!

I have a question though, and it is, how much ganache does this recipe make?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousThis makes a little more than a cup of frosting

ziya nike said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi, I have lots of chocolate spread at home, would I be able to turn it in to a ganache by adding milk and butter? Thanks.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@ziya nikeAdd very little hot milk to it and mix it up. It will get creamy and spreadable. Butter is not necessary.

sagarika said... Best Blogger Tips

Hey!
I have used the exact measurement and done the exact procedure.. but it's not stiff to spread.. what should be the reason?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@sagarikaMay be u must have added little more milk, add some more chocolate, it should be good
