I think it is 2 to 1 for dark and 3 to 1 for white? Is this correct? If I am doing half milk and half dark choc. or semi sweet. What is the ratio?
Thanks so much.
I am making it now if anyone can help. THanks

Planet Cake does recommend 3-to-1 for white and 2-to-1 for dark. Milk chocolate is not addressed - guess a mix of dark and milk would be okay at 2-to-1?

I found this video tutorial on how2cakes.com:

I asked what ratio they used and they responded with:

For dark chocolate you use one part cream to two parts chocolate, if you use a really good quality chocolate like Callebaut, you'll need one part cream to 1.5 parts chocolate.
You need to let it cool so it becomes spreadable.

Check my signature. I also made a tutorial on how to make it.

If you will use a mixture of milk and dark/semi sweet ganache, I suggest you measure them separately first and then combine the ingredients after measuring. Measure your 3:1 ratio for milk and 2:1 ratio for dark/semi sweet.

My first time using ganache today. After I covered it with MMF, I have to say it was the cleanest looking cake I've ever made!!!

12 oz. Nestle Semisweet Morsels
6 oz. heavy whipping cream

Heated cream in saucepan until it just started to lightly boil. Poured over morsels in a pyrex bowl and let stand for at least a minute. Stirred until cream well incorporated. I had to microwave it for 30 seconds to help get all the lumps out. I covered it with plastic wrap, letting it cling to the surface. When it was room temperature, I iced my cake with it (7" round).
