Hi All,


I'm about to make some chocolate ganache for tomorrow. As I am in Australia, ill be using pure cream with a 36% milk fat, and Cadbury's dark chocolate melts. Which has 43% cocoa solids. Do I use a 2:1 ratio or 3:1 ratio. 


Iv'e never used this chocolate before, so I thought I would seek some advice first. Thank you kindly in advance.

Hey NetworkZombie

I use 2:1 for dark and milk and 3:1 for white.


Head on over to youtube and check out Inspired by Michelle. Really easy tutorials,and she explains simply. I  find the  Melts doesn't always fully melt as it's compound chocolate. I tend to use family eating blocks of chocolate, which taste much nicer, and can be cheaper when it's on sale. Also, someone has to make the sacrifice to eat leftovers :smile:

AThanks Shazza65! I just made 900 chocolate to 450 cream. I made sure they were air pockets not chocolate!
