You’ll notice that I didn’t list any actual measurements. That’s because this recipe is based entirely on approximation. I’ve found that any time I’ve tried to actually measure out the ingredients for ganache, it doesn’t seem to work. By simply eyeballing the ingredients, it turns out perfectly every time. If you want the ganache to be thinner, like a chocolate syrup, add more whipping cream. If you want this thicker, like for truffles, simply add less whipping cream. It’s not rocket science… thank goodness!
To give you an idea of how many chocolate chips to start out with… the amount of chocolate chips will determine approximately how much ganache you’ll have. If you use 1 cup chocolate chips, you’ll have a little more than a cup of ganache.
