Vegan Master Ganache

What you need: 

1 cup Soy Coffee Creamer (Silk is great.)
1 cup Vegan Dark Chocolate Chips/Bar/Squares

What you do: 

If using a bar or squares, chop the chocolate into 1/4 pieces, as any bigger and they will not melt properly.
Place the chips or chopped chocolate into a large mixing bowl; set aside. In a double-boiler (a smaller pot over a larger pot with water inside), slowly bring the cream to a boil--be careful not to scorch! When cream has begun to boil, immediately pour it over the chocolate. One can either whisk the two ingredients together or use a rubber spatula and fold together until smooth and shiny.
This recipe can be used as the coating for vegan truffles, glazing brownies, or my personal favorite--glossing over a vegan cheesecake! Yum! :)

SO HOW'D IT GO?

A non-vegan ganache recipe calls for 32 oz. heavy cream to 48 oz. choc chips, in addition to an entire stick of butter. So yes, maybe altering the ratio of the above listed recipe would create a better consistency. I'm going to try this recipe and add some different flavors to the ganache, then enrobe them in dark chocolate to make some special Valentine's Day truffles. Wish me luck!  :)>>>

I found the one-to-one ratio to create something pretty runny.  For anyone trying this, I'd start with a larger amount of chocolate than creamer.  Maybe 3:1 or even 4:1.
