• white chocolate: 115 grams (4.1 ounces)
  • cocoa butter: 10 grams (0.35 ounces)
  • whipping cream: 150 grams (5.3 ounces or about 2/3 cup)
  • gelatin: 1 gram (0.035 ounces)
  • pistachio paste: 30 grams (1.06 ounces)
  • glucose syrup: 15 grams (0.53 ounces)


  • Mixing Bowls

    A variety of sizes will help you simultaneously manage your wet and dry ingredients. Opt for stainless steel for easy cleanup.

  • Saucepan

    A medium-sized saucepan is ideal for heating your cream, syrup, and paste together. A non-stick model is preferred for easy stirring and minimal fuss.

  • Blender

    Having a good quality blender will ensure your ganache is smooth and creamy. Stick or immersion blenders provide the best control.

  • Hand Mixer

    A hand mixer will help you whip the ganache to stiff peaks and achieve the perfect consistency.


Step 1

1. Pour the gelatin into a small bowl of cold water and let it swell. Make sure to use just enough water to cover the gelatin; too much water can dilute the mixture later on.

Step 2

2. Melt the cocoa butter in a microwave or double boiler, then cool it to 113°F (45°C). Pour the melted cocoa butter over the white chocolate in a mixing bowl.

Step 3

3. In a saucepan, combine the whipping cream, glucose syrup, and pistachio paste. Heat the mixture until it's hot but not boiling, and then pour it over the chocolate and cocoa butter mixture. You can use an instant-read thermometer to monitor the temperature.

Step 4

4. Dissolve the swollen gelatin in a small amount of warm water. Then, pour it into the chocolate mixture. Allow the mixture to sit for a few moments to let the chocolate fully melt.

Step 5

5. Blend the mixture using a hand blender until smooth and homogenous. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, ensuring it touches the surface of the ganache to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for 8-10 hours to stabilize.

Step 6

6. Once the ganache has set, whip it with an electric mixer until it reaches stiff peaks. It's now ready to use. Use a cold bowl and beaters for better whipping results.
