ADoes anyone have a good recipe for ganache under fondant? The last time I did it i think I used a bag of chocolate chips and 2 cups of heavy cream. It got very melty when kept out at room temp and it wasn't even hot out.

Thanks!

Can you do the same with the colored candy melts?  since they don't have a chocolate flavor it would be kinda like a vanilla ganache...which would be great for me since ganache looks better under fondant but alot of my clients don't like chocolate.

Use 2 parts chocolate to one part cream for dark and milk chocolate and 3 parts chocolate to one part cream for white chocolate.  If you use good chocolate you should not have any problems.

AUm, I don't think candy melts and cream = ganache.

That said. Milk and white chocolate: cream -3:1 by weight.

Dark and semi-sweet- 2:1 by weight.
