Sour Cream Chocolate Ganache

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

I made this but had to make some changes to the recipe because the flavor was odd. I followed the instructions exactly and was pleased with the texture, which was beautiful, but the flavor was sour and bitter with an aftertaste of chocolate. I added one more teaspoon of vanilla and about a tablespoon of honey which definitely helped. If I make it again I will experiment with reducing the sour cream or using milk instead of semi sweet chips.

Can you use double cream instead of sour

Only made half the recipe and it easily covered 2 dozen cupcakes. I melted the chocolate in the microwave and used the full teaspoon of vanilla so it was easier to spread.

OH. MY. GOSH. Tangy and chocolatey is a sensation! And no butter. I didn't bother getting out the mixer or messing up a bowl. Melt chocolate in a pot, add SC and vanilla and whisked. The recipe makes A LOT. Actually, too much. I halved the recipe and it was still too much for 1 bundt. Next time, I'll try cutting down to 1/3.

I made this to add onto the top of my chocolate chip banana bread. It was amazing. I did add a little sweet cream butter to the chocolate chips while melting them. Then after I mixed in the sour cream I added a small pinch of powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Turned out SO delicious!

I thought this was very good! I used Nestle vanilla chips to go with a chocolate fudge cake mix and about 1- 1/2 Tblsp of Dekuyper buttershots liqueur while melting the chips. Could also just mix the liqueur with the sour cream before mixing all together. Could not taste the sour cream flavor at all. I cored out the middle of the cupcakes and poured the Ganache inside, then let them sit in the fridge overnight. I will make these again!

This on top of triple chocolate molten lava cupcakes was WONDERFUL. It balanced the super sweet cupcakes nicely without making them too sweet. Quick and easy too
