How to Make Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Ganache Frosting

Step 1

In a heat proof bowl, melt the dark chocolate and heavy whipping cream together. You can do this in a double boiler, or in the microwave. If using the microwave, only do 30 second intervals and stir between each one to prevent chocolate from burning.

Step 2

Add in the caramel sauce and peanut butter and stir to combine completely.

Step 3

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic wrap covers the ganache completely to prevent a film from forming. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 4

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer), whisk the ganache on high until it’s light and fluffy.

FAQ's

Can I use another kind of chocolate?

Yes! I used chocolate chips for ease, as I didn't want to chop chocolate. But, if you are using a dark chocolate bar, then be sure to chop it so it's in small pieces. You could also use milk chocolate or white chocolate as well.

How should I store this frosting?

Because this frosting has heavy whipping cream in it, you need to store this in the fridge. And, if you use it to frost cake or cupcakes, then those also need to be stored in the fridge.

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
