Chocolate Pecan Ganache


Really fun and delicious dessert recipe for Chocolate Pecan Ganache! It’s made from pecans and is SO creamy and chocolatey!



  • 2 cups pecans, soaked for three hours
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup milk (almond milk, whole milk, cream, depending on personal preference)
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar


  1. First, soak your pecans for about three hours.
  2. In the food processor or blender, blend your pecans until really chopped.
  3. Then, melt your chocolate. I used half milk chocolate and half dark chocolate, but adjust how much of each depending on your personal tastes.
  4. Add the chocolate, coconut oil, water, agave, and milk.
  5. Process again and keep the processor running until you get a smooth consistency, it may take a few minutes.
  6. Take breaks to scrape down the sides with your spatula.
  7. Transfer the ganache to a tupperware or little jars for gifting and store in the fridge. In my opinion this ganache is best chilled.
  8. I topped mine with some additional melted chocolate and cacao nibs.
