chocolate ganache

I am dipping brownie squares in ganache. I have let the brownies cool, but do I refrigerate after dipping? I want a shiny hard shell. Using a heavy cream, semisweet chocolate and corn syrup recipe.

    hardlikearmour from Food52.com says: Ganache will be soft at room temperature, so I'd definitely put the dipped brownies in the fridge. Are you looking for a shell like you'd expect on a chocolate coated candy?

    hardlikearmour from Food52.com says: Did it work out okay? If you try again I'd suggest the "mirror glaze" found in the middle of this page: http://mrjeffmccarthy.com/category/dessert/page/3/ It is similar to a ganache in ingredients, but the proportions are different and it turns out like what you're looking for.

  • NomNom from Food52.com says: The test piece in the fridge hardened with a semigloss glaze but I don't like the fridge action on the brownie. The counter piece glossed over shiny and nice, but not stackable. I glazed part of the pan, and I think I like brownies without icing.
