I wouldn't recommend it. I *have* used chocolate chips, for practice :D, but they're full of fillers. So, it's really hard to get them to blend properly.

 

I always get confused with metric, but I *think* you do an even mililiter/miligram match.

 

So, two for one, it would be 300 grams chocolate, 150 mills (mils?) cream (for dark chocolate)

3:1 it would be 300 grams chocolate, 100 mills cream (for white or milk chocolate)

 

Anyone out there good with metric?

It's fine for cupcakes and kids stuff, they love the taste and they are familiar with the taste.   It also firms up well for piping.  But it's not for fancy pouring ganache.

No I want to use it under fondant
