What You Need To Make This Recipe

Whipped White Chocolate Ganache Ingredients

White Chocolate: make sure that you use a good-quality chocolate, cooking chocolate would be the best option as it is specifically formulated to things like melting and using on cakes. Avoid using white candy melts, it’s not white chocolate!

Heavy Cream: heavy cream or whipping cream whatever you like to call it, is basically cream with a fat percentage of 35% or higher. This is what gives it the ability to whip up to stiff peaks.

How To Make This Recipe

Step 1: Melt together the white chocolate and heavy cream using a microwave(30 sec bursts) or a double boiler. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 5 hours, or overnight.

Step 2: Once chilled beat using a stand or hand mixer to stiff peaks, this takes about 5 minutes. That’s it!

Storing The Frosting

Store the frosting in an air tight container until you’re ready to use it.

I recommend refrigerating the frosting and re-whipping it before using it to frost cakes, cupcakes etc.

I used this whipped white chocolate ganache to frost these cupcakes.

Pro Tips

  • If your ganache seizes, add 1-2 tbsp. of warm cream and mix until it comes back together. Or you could melt the ganache again be cautious not to burn it!
  • Use cooking or couverture chocolate for the best whipped white chocolate ganache frosting.

Notes

If you’re using a microwave to melt your chocolate make sure to melt it in 30 second bursts and stir in between as well so that the top of the chocolate doesn’t burn.

If you’re using the double boiler method, then make sure the bowl isn’t touching the hot water in the pot, this could cause the chocolate to burn.
