Healthy Chocolate Ganache | with Jaggery | Glossy Chocolate Sauce recipe

Who doesn't love chocolates? This Jaggery version of chocolate ganache would be lip-smacking and surely a healthy one for every chocolate lovers. You can hit several recipes if you have this sauce handy with you. This post was originally posted on Nov 20, 2019, which I'm updating today with the video and the detailed procedure.

I usually make Chocolate Ganache with Pure Honey as the only sweetener. As it is not very economic, I tried to come up with the Jaggery version which is very simple and easy-to-make yet yields unbelievably good result in the taste profile. The chocolate ganache prepared with Jaggery and Honey is no lesser in taste than the one prepared with the white sugar.

This super yummy and supremely healthy Chocolate ganache can be stored in the refrigerator for a month and can be used as a topping for cakes, pancakes; as a spread for bread, buns; or as a filling and taste enrichers in chocolate-based beverages.

When I first posted this recipe, I have used more butter and even milk powder with honey as the only sweetener. The updated recipe makes use of just a teaspoon of butter with no milk powder added. The ratio of the ingredients is perfectly chosen to get the healthy cum tasty Chocolate Ganache which fits quite beautifully in all the chocolate-based recipes.

Furthermore, I suggest adding honey to get the glossiness and perfect taste in the sauce. But, make sure the honey is added after you turned off the stove. The milk can be omitted and the water can be added instead of milk. But the sauce would be thin and not so rich as we get with the milk.
