    How to store leftover ganache

    I have a ton of leftover ganache from a cake I made for Rob's birthday.

    How long will it keep in the fridge?

    Can you freeze it? I am thinking yes, but the chocolate was expensive, and I'd hate to curdle my nice ganache.

    I need ice cream ASAP to use all this ganache on.
    If loving me is wrong, you don't want to be right.

    Don't touch the hair!

    It does freeze great. ganache makes great truffles too. Form in balls fast freeze and then store in plastic bag. I have also keep a container of ganache in the frig for some time....about 3 months and its still good.

    My "Art of Chocolate" book says if packed in an air-tight container truffles (ganache filling)will keep indefinitely in the freezer (leave in container to defrost to avoid condensation), 1 month if refrigerated. I think leaving it in the ganache form is best for the freezer. Can you make a wack of truffles for an upcoming event/random gift giving?
