Gingerbread Butter Ganache

Chocolates - Week 6, June 15h

These recipes are copied straight from my notes in my individual production pastry class. I’m putting them here on just a pinch for my own posterity.

This ganache firms up, a bit like fudge. It is meant to be dipped in coating chocolate. The directions may seem confusing, but it's really as simple as letting the ganache firm up, coating one side in dipping chocolate, cutting, then dipping again.
