Product Description

  • Belgian chocolate ganache.
  • A rich, versatile ganache made with smooth Belgian chocolate. Use as a topping, glaze, dip or filling. Smooth Belgian chocolate gives our ganache a real richness. It's deliciously versatile too whip it up as a cupcake topping, add butter to make a rich buttercream filling, or simply heat it to make a sophisticated glaze or drizzle. For a festive treat, you can also roll it into little balls and dust with cocoa powder to create indulgent truffles.
  • Pack size: 400G
