Have never used it but there appears to be different types.

Does anyone have the recipe for the type that you spread on then use a hot knife to smooth?

Yes, but only by weight!

White or milk chocolate:

250ml cream (35% fat content)
750 grams chocolate

Dark chocolate:

250ml cream (35% fat)
500 grams chocolate

Bring the cream to the boil and pour over the chocolate. Stir until all the chocolate is melted. Cover the surface with a piece of cling wrap and allow to set overnight (at least 8 hours). Texture should be like peanut butter, if too hard give it a quick blast in the microwave. Once you have covered your cake leave it to set at room temperature for at least 8 hours.

Yep, just like bonjovebabe said.

I personally prefer to measure by pound. Just remember, 3:1 for white and milk chocolates and 2:1 for dark and semi sweet.
