Vegan Hazelnut Mocha Ganache

Ingredients: Vegan Hazelnut Mocha Ganache

  • 5.3 oz
    Oat milk
  • 0.4 oz
    Whole bean coffee
  • As needed
    Oat milk
  • 2.1 oz
    glucose syrup
  • 3.4 oz
    Plant-based butter, very soft
  • 1.1 oz
    coconut oil
  • 0.7 oz
    Coffee Liqueur
  • 0.7 oz
    hazelnut liqueur

Preparation: Vegan Hazelnut Mocha Ganache

  1. Crush or roughly grind the coffee beans and combine them with the oat milk in a small pot.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, and remove the pot from the heat.
  3. Cover and allow it to steep for 5 minutes.
  4. Strain the mixture through a pre-moistened cheesecloth.
  5. Weigh the infused oat milk - you will have lost some in the infusing process. Return the oat milk to its original weight by adding fresh oat milk as necessary.
  6. Combine the glucose syrup with the coffee-flavored oat milk and bring to a boil.
  7. Pour the hot mixture over the dark chocolate, and allow to stand for one minute, then stir or blend to emulsify.
  8. Stir in the plant-based butter and coconut oil. Make sure the mixture is homogeneous and no lumps of butter remain.
  9. Stream in the liqueur, stirring or blending to emulsify.
  10. Agitate the ganache on the tabletop until it is the consistency of pastry cream, then transfer to a piping bag fitted with an 11mm/.43” piping tip.
  11. Pipe truffle-shaped rounds of approximately 5g/.18 oz each.
  12. Allow to crystallize for 20 minutes.
