Ganache is my go-to topping for chocolate cakes and baked goods

Dark Chocolate Ganache

Ganache is my go-to topping for chocolate cakes and baked goods. I use it for both work and personal desserts. Because it is simple, elegant, and delicious, I love using it. I would cover the world in it if I could.

The main ingredient for a basic ganache is chocolate. Since I’ve generally used semi-sweet chocolate in my recipes, I knew that I needed to make it keto friendly. The easy-peasy solution I found is to use Lily’s dark chocolate. Order it online or pick up in your local health food store.

Chef Alexa likes Lily’s Sweets for keto chocolate. How about you?  Click here to share your thoughts on Lily’s Chocolates on our Facebook group.

Simple to make and versatile, ganache may become your favorite, too. Frost German Chocolate Cake, brownies, and more. It makes a luscious warm fondue for dipping fruit. Craving chocolate covered bacon? Pour some on it! Having many uses is why it is KetoLuxe.

This German Chocolate Cake is made with Chef Alexa’s keto friendly Dark Chocolate Ganache.

Less than 5 minutes

5 minutes

Bourbon makes a fun addition to this frosting. Swap it for the vanilla extract.
