Here is the recipe I wanted to try (This will be for a filling of a cupcake)


Dark Chocolate Whiskey Ganache ◦

16 ounces good quality dark chocolate 65-72 %, chopped into small pieces 1/4 inch or less.

◦3/4 cup heavy cream ◦

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened ◦

1/4 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey


All I could find at the store was Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips....  It doesn't say anywhere on the pack the % of chocolate -  Would these work out okay?
