thank u ! i 'll try it out. would u suggest a 1:1 ratio of chocolate to cream if i use dark chocolate (65%) ?
You're welcome ... I think 1 : 1 with dark chocolate would be very watery to be slabbed even with added cocoa butter ... also its shelf life would be considerably reduced. You may try the standard recipe, 2 : 1 dark chocolate ganache with the other ingredients I mentioned ... but you will need a food processor as it is a fatty ganache you can easily lose emulsion after adding cocoa butter. With dark chocolates, especially with high cocoa content dark chocolates, most of the time, you will end up with a texture between cream and butter ganaches. 55% dark chocolates would be more suitable for the first attempts.
