Hunh, I've never had that happen. How exactly did you make the ganache? I'd try gently heating over water or in short spurts in the microwave, then whisking like crazy.

Yeah, I would think that either the mixture wasn't hot enough to melt all together, or it was too hot and the chocolate burned. In which case it wouldn't really be salvageable, unfortunately.

It may seem counterintuitive, but adding more warm (not hot) cream may bring it back together.

Put it in a blender and let 'er rip on high speed while you trickle in a little water. That always works for me!
