Ganache - It isnt setting in the fridge? Answered

Well I have tryed this recipe https://www.instructables.com/id/E6GFU1NWXTEVYDYEQA/ and have done everything. Though, i used single cream instead of whipped cream, and i didnt put sugar syrup. I didnt think that these would make a difference (i didnt have these), so, do they? I have put it in the fridge for 15 mins, taken it out, stirred, and put back in x2 and it still isnt thickening. Does anyone know why?

Not enough fat.  Whipping cream is 30 -40% fat and single cream is 10 -20 % fat.  I think you don't have enough fat to make it thicken.

thanks, il look into that next time, i think i made it cold enough to make it half set, i made the balls and put back in the fridge. thanks again!

Re-design is right.

You cannot make ganache with single cream. It is the fat content.

i would use your 'ganache' with some added milk to make some lovely hot chocolate to drink!
