Dairy Free Chocolate Ganache

You do realize that this isn’t a true ganache, right?
Gluten free, Dairy Free Almond Orange Cake Recipe with Dairy Free Ganache

After all, the definition of ganache is chocolate and cream combined to create a frosting.

So this thinner dairy free coating isn’t traditional, but really, Who cares!
By making that one decision to avoid cream, some of my favorite people can now enjoy their cake with a luscious, smooth, rich, dark chocolate glaze.

I wanted a chocolate coating with great gloss and flavor so use your best dairy free chocolate. You don't notice the coconut as a flavor once it is on the cake.
My favorite way to use this is on my Almond Orange Cake Recipe
