Dairy Free Chocolate Ganache (Vegan, Paleo, refined sugar free, soy free)

Ok, so, its Easter season.  Which means chocolate.   It also means dairy and sugar and a whole load of ingredients that you might think you just cannot do without.

You is wrong, homeslice. :)

For the longest time I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to make a chocolate ganache-type spread that has the same creamy sweet texture as the dairy and sugar based traditional version.  I didn’t want to make it oil-based, something like coconut oil or palm oil just won’t give you that same lovely ‘jenesaisquoi’ in your mouth.

And then I came across this can of organic coconut milk that was leftover in the fridge. And it got me thinking…. And it got me throwing stuff together…

Now let me tell you about this ganache.  Its super luscious.  Its super thick. Its not overly sweet.  It explodes chocolate in your mouth.  Oh, and best?  It will make your eyeballs pop if you spread it on these fluffy chocolate cupcakes or use it as a cupcake filling.  Be Still My Precious Heart.  No. Seriously.

Dear vegan chocolate ganache- can I date you?  You’re kind of perfect.

I must share! You guys, hold on to your hats.  And smear this chocolatey goodness on the best GF Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes Ever. *happy times*

    Hi Heather-
    it keeps very well- you may wish to heat it up a tad before serving if it was in the fridge. :)

    Hey there Katie!

    So glad you’re going to give agar a try- I find it is a huge life saver. I no longer need to use any xanthan gum in my baking (which is wonderful because the stuff is so not good for my gut), and if you are not vegan, you can easily substitute unflavoured gelatin. Its really a terrific egg replacer! (You’ll find its super cheap at your local asian grocer).

    Oh my gosh….I am a chocolate fanatic! This looks fantastic!

    Agar agar is always something I have shyed away from for some reason…This just kicked my butt to try it out!
