So I am doing a kind of last minute cake and I need to make chocolate ganache. I am out of whipping cream and I don't have time to run to the store today. Any ideas on using whole milk instead?

not a problem here is my heavy cream subsitiute. It will convert you icon_lol.gif

  3/4 cup milk
  1/3 cup butter
1. Melt the butter.
2. Pour it into the milk, and stir.
3. Use in place of one cup of heavy cream

yup because the butter adds the fat. I might suggest adding a tad bit more butter.

Was wondering if you can use the almond bark chocolate to make the ganache? Or does it need to be a better/different chocolate?

Don't know about the bark, but I just use semi-sweet chocolate chips (whatever brand is on sale) and it has always turned out great and tasted scrumptious. icon_biggrin.gif
