Coconut Ganache

  • white chocolate: 200 grams (7.1 ounces)
  • heavy cream (33%): 100 grams (3.5 ounces)
  • coconut paste: 7 grams (0.25 ounces)
  • coconut flakes: 15 grams (0.53 ounces)


  • Microwave-safe bowl

    Make sure your bowl is large enough to hold all the ingredients with room to spare to avoid spills.

  • Spatula

    A silicone spatula works best for mixing the ganache as it can scrape down the sides of the bowl effectively.

  • Piping bag

    Using a piping bag ensures your ganache looks neat and professional. Choose disposable bags for easy cleanup.

  • Refrigerator

    A crucial step is stabilizing the ganache in the fridge. Ensure there's ample space for cooling.


Step 1

Step 1: Heat the white chocolate and heavy cream together in the microwave using short bursts to prevent overheating. Tip: Stir the mixture every 15 seconds to ensure even melting.

Step 2

Step 2: Once the chocolate and cream are fully combined and smooth, add the coconut paste and coconut flakes. Mix well using a spatula. Tip: Ensure the coconut paste is evenly distributed to enhance the flavor.

Step 3

Step 3: Transfer the ganache into a piping bag and place it in the refrigerator to stabilize for at least 2 hours. Tip: If you don't have a piping bag, you can use a ziplock bag and cut off one corner to pipe the ganache.

Step 4

Step 4: Enjoy the rich and creamy coconut ganache! Tip: For a decorative touch, you can sprinkle additional coconut flakes on top before serving.

For those who need a gluten-free option, this Coconut Ganache recipe is naturally gluten-free as it doesn't include any wheat-based ingredients. Just ensure that your white chocolate and other components are certified gluten-free. To make this recipe vegan, swap out the white chocolate for a vegan-friendly white chocolate alternative and use coconut cream in place of heavy cream. The coconut paste and coconut flakes are already vegan, so no changes needed there! The result is an equally decadent ganache that's dairy-free and totally plant-based.


  • Why did my ganache turn grainy?

    This can happen if the chocolate and cream are overheated. Be sure to use short bursts in the microwave and stir frequently to maintain a smooth consistency.

  • Can I use milk chocolate instead of white chocolate?

    Yes, you can substitute milk chocolate, but it will alter the flavor profile. You may need to adjust the sweetness to taste.

  • How long can I store the ganache in the fridge?

    The ganache can be stored in the fridge for up to a week in an airtight container. Just make sure to let it come to room temperature before using it again.

  • Can I freeze the ganache?

    Yes, you can freeze the ganache for up to three months. Thaw it in the fridge overnight before you plan to use it.

  • How can I fix a ganache that's too thick?

    If your ganache is too thick, you can gently reheat it and add a splash more cream to thin it out to your desired consistency.

  • Can I add flavors to the ganache?

    Absolutely! Feel free to experiment by adding flavors like vanilla, almond extract, or even a splash of rum to give your ganache a unique twist.
