I was wondering if you can make white chocolate ganache with the white chips that are not really chocolate?

I made some with real white chocolate and it was great but I was wondering about the chips.

And I now know what it means to seize up your chocolate... I felt really stupid for doing it, I knew before I did it that it would ruin it.

I melted some semi-sweet choc chips to drizzle on some strawberries and it was too thick to drizzle (so I thought) so stupid me I added cold cream to hot chocolate... I know, I know thumbsdown.gif I knew I shouldn't do it but I did.

Luckily I had more chips to melt icon_biggrin.gif

i was curious about that too. also, can i make a ganache with candy melts? white almond bark (aka candy melts) is so much cheaper for me than getting real white chocolate. sometimes i'm not concerned with taste, but performance.
