  1. Pour a couple of inches of boiling water into a small saucepan. Place a slightly larger bowl over the saucepan so that it sits nicely on the rim. Make sure the water isn't touching the bottom of the bowl.

  2. Place the pan onto the stove on a low heat.

  3. Add the chopped chocolate and the soy milk into the bowl. Stir gently until the chocolate has completely melted and there are no lumps left. Remove from the heat.

  4. Allow the bowl of ganache to sit at room temperature for around 1 hour until firm. If it's still too soft to pipe, just pop it into the fridge until it has reached your desired consistency.

Recipe Notes

  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week.
  • *Use a semi-sweet chocolate with around 45% cocoa content. Chocolate with a very high cocoa content will not work.
  • **I have only tested this recipe using soy and full-fat coconut milk (the tinned kind). If using coconut milk, increase the amount to 240ml (1 cup) as it will set firmer than soy milk.
