A Few FAQs
I like to prepare this chocolate ganache for everything, not just this banana pudding; it stays creamy and has the best taste that I’ve ever tried in chocolate ganache! Also, the better chocolate you use, the better the ganache.
The ratio is always the same 1×1, meaning 1 if you use 100g of chocolate, you’ll need 100g of heavy cream; it cannot get easier than this. To make it, add the same amount of chocolate and whipping cream in a medium bowl. Next, add the bowl to the microwave for 20 seconds, and whisk until everything is incorporated.
You can store your leftovers in a fridge covered with plastic wrap. And they will stay fresh for up to 2 days. Note: mix the bananas with some lemon juice. This way, they won’t go brown and will last in the fridge for up to 3 days.
