Chocolate Ganache Marshmallow Frosting – Filling (Dairy-Free Option)

As thick as the ganache filling in chocolate truffles, this chocolate ganache marshmallow frosting and filling tastes like chocolate caramel but is not chewy. This mixture makes one of the most decadent desserts I have had in quite a while. The only problem is that it is so addictive! Enjoy all you want and have a chicken salad for dinner.

Course Desserts
Cuisine Fernch
Ingredient Keyword chocolate, chocolate chips, full-fat coconut milk, heavy cream
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Cooling Time Varies on Use: 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 2 cups


  • 1 recipe Chocolate Ganache* using 1 cup heavy cream (or full-fat coconut milk) (Enjoy Life chocolate chips for dairy-free)
  • 8 large gluten free marshmallows cut in quarters (or small marshmallows – 1.5 ounces/43g) (Jet-Puffed brand)


  1. Make the chocolate ganache in a bain marie (heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of “simmering” water) or in the microwave on medium (#5) stirring ever so often to prevent the chocolate from seizing up. It seizes up when it overheats, even in a bain marie, if the water boils.
  2. Once the chocolate melts, add the marshmallows and microwave
    on Power No. 5, stopping and stirring every 80 seconds for 5 – 7 minutes or until
    the marshmallows melt. If you don’t mind some small bits of marshmallow left
    that are not melted, feel free to stop when you’re ready.

  3. Pour over a cake, chill and then whip with an electric mixer to use as frosting, or chill and use a filling. In my case, I poured it on a crust and chilled and then topped. The filling took about 8 hours to firm up enough to become as thick as truffles. You can also use this to make truffles.


*Kirkland brand of chocolate chips are no longer dairy free unless your store is carrying the older verion in the white bag. The new bag is mostly red.

  1. It would be helpful if you would provide a link within the recipe when you use another recipe for an ingredient. That way we would not have to hunt down which one in the Recipe Box you intend for use.

    1. Galeoreo,

      In my recent recipes, you will now find a section above the recipe, “Links You’ll Need” or some such wording. This is where the chocolate ganache recipe link can be found. Due to a software update/change, it is impossible for me to add links within recipes anymore. It’s very unfortunate because everyone appreciated that feature. I will add the words “linked above” if that helps you. Let me know.
