I'm doing Ganache for the first time tonight, but I wanna make it as a filling and not as the cake covering! So my question is, first will it work, and does the 2:1 ratio still apply here? TIA!!

Yes. Yes, it can. You can also do 1:1 if you want a fudgier like filling.

I only don't dam if I'm going to be frosting the cake in chocolate frosting of some sort. I also allow the ganache to completely set up before frosting the cake.

Oh that's too funny! I made ganache 3 nights ago - let it set in the frigde overnight so I could whip it for a filling the next day. And yesterday when I took it out, there were only 3 Tablespoons left in the bowl. Obviously, there was a 6'4" Irish mouse in the house! (Hubby said "It sure was good!") Maybe I should show him my tag line on this post! LOL

I never measure. I just put the chips in a bowl and cover the chips with a tiny bit on top of that. Turns out perfect every time.
