Good Morning,

This is my go to recipe for Ganache:

9 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Place chocolate in a medium bowl. Heat cream in a small saucepan until bubbles begin to appear around edges (scalding); pour over chocolate. Let stand 5 minutes, then stir until smooth. Set aside at room temperature until cool but pourable, stirring occasionally.

Hope this helps!

Ganache should be 110F for pouring. Any cooler, and it will be thick and you will have curtains. Any warmer, and it will be too thin.
