Use leftover ganache?

I made a cake, a Too Much Chocolate Cake. It was absolutely delicious! I also made chocolate ganache to top it, but I didn't use all the ganache. I put it in a small bowl in the fridge. Can I just heat it in the microwave and re-use it as a spread on butter croissants? Or does anyone have suggestions re what NOT to do to re-use it? I did read not to put it in the freezer, for example!
Thanks in advance.

What's leftover ganache...


Yes, roll into balls and make truffles, roll in chopped nuts or sprinkles.

Melt and top ice cream

That was going to be my suggestion as well. If the mixture is a bit slack to roll then mix in either some dessicated coconut, or crushed up amoretti biscuits ( I may have spelt that wrong but basically macaroons)
Another suggestion would be hot sauce over ice-cream and pears as in 'Belle Pear Helene'

"Leftover" Ganache? You need a spoon and a glass of milk ;)

I used to spread it between Graham crackers. Kids love them.

I've read this thread title several times now, and I just can't quite understand it. I don't think I've ever seen the words 'leftover' and 'ganache' used together before! ;)
