Sour Cream Chocolate Ganache

Sour cream adds a tangy note to a ganache icing. This is perfect whether on cakes or cupcakes or muffins.

This is definitely a slightly healthier way to make ganache. The soured cream givs a slightly unusual taste that wasn't really to my liking, but the others seemed to like it. It didn't set with a glaze for me

We really like the slightly sour flavor the sour cream gives. I sometimes add a little Triple-Sec or other fruity liquoer.

Pure heaven, and the easiest recipe you'll ever find. Wish I'd known about this years ago!

Texture was good, but the tanginess from the sour cream was too overwhelming. A little disappointing, I was excited to see a recipe that had a alternative to heavy cream, which I never have on hand, to something that is part of my basic pantry list.

This is a great recipe when you have no heavy whipping cream on hand! I also used white chocolate chips and it tasted wonderful. I put it on top of a chocolate bunt cake.

5 stars as a chocolate cheesecake topping. I agree that the sour cream could be tasted, but it was a great compliment to the cheesecake! It was very easy to make in the microwave. I just stirred every 10 seconds until it was perfectly smooth. So easy!

Well, it doesnt taste like ganache. The sour cream is quite potent. But I think this tastes pretty good. It seems to enhance the chocolate flavor. This was not very sweet so I would recommend using milk chocolate if you like it sweet. I think it might help with the sour cream flavor too. I also used fat free sour cream. It hardened up just fine. Its a recipe in its own league but tastes good.

I didn't really care for this. I love bitter chocolate and love sour cream in desserts, but this didn't go well together. I also thought the strong flavor took away from the cake I drizzled it on. I won't make this again.
