This simple lemon ganache is made with only 4 ingredients. Made with white chocolate for a rich, creamy ganache that can be used in a bunch of different ways!





  • If the cream doesn’t fully dissolve the chocolate: If after you pour the cream over the chocolate it doesn’t fully melt, add everything back to the pan and heat on low, stirring until fully melted.
  • Adjust the thickness of the ganache. Depending on how you plan to use the ganache, you may want to make it slightly thicker or runnier. Add a couple tablespoons of extra white chocolate melting wafers for a thicker consistency. Add two tablespoons fewer white chocolate wafers for a thinner consistency.
  • Use the ganache before it fully sets. It is easiest to use the ganache to decorate or make into desserts before it fully sets. Once you have decorated your cake or filled your macarons, store desserts in the fridge until ready to consume.
