Is it possible to make vegan milk chocolate ganache and vegan white chocolate ganache?

— Rozanne R-P


You're gonna have to change the formula and be very careful depending on the kind of white chocolate you use. Some are very waxy and are very resistant to Melting actually, but this is a white chocolate that I got recently some of you may know about Augusta Yearwood and her company Augustus. Luscious. This white chocolate isn't Pure White it is what it is absolutely delicious and she's let's see what it's made with it's made with fair trade cacao butter social butter is the naturally occurring fat in chocolate. It's not dairy. and vegan cane sugar organic coconut milk powder and vanilla and some other some extracts. Ah, if you've heard about 11 Madison Park the vegan restaurant that's got a Michelin star or two. I think dinners $150 a person they use this so I would melt it and add just a little bit of plant milk at a time and see what happens recently. So I haven't had milk chocolate in a long time and there are a lot of vegan milk chocolates on the market today. There are some of chases that I haven't really loved but I this is a new to me brand I understand. That it's very popular in Israel where it's called Panda but seventh heaven here and it's a milk chocolate and it's delicious. So go ahead and use it. But you're going to change the formula you're going to use a lot less milk a lot less. You know when I say milk that I mean plant milk, right?
