Help - chocolate ganache as a gift?

Julia_T | Nov 11, 2011 11:29 AM

Has anyone ever given ganache as a gift? Opinions would be welcome - is this a goofy or good gift?

I was thinking of putting it up in small jars with labels (Grand Marnier ganache; peppermint; Kahlua; etc), with instructions to keep in the fridge, plus I suppose instructions on how to use (um, heat and drizzle? heh) or turn it into a buttercream frosting.

How about white chocolate ganache - does such a thing exist? I just ordered some hazelnut flavoring and am thinking that would be a great combination if it doesn't taste artificial.

Finally - any favorite small gifting jars? I am about to turn to my old friend Google....

Thanks for any thoughts or experience....
