    Bad recipe. Didn’t turn into ganache. Turned into soup. After trying figure out what I did wrong I looked up other ganache recipes and this ones ratio of chocolate to cream is way off. This is a 1:1 ratio. Most other ganache ratios are 3:1 or 4:1 chocolate to cream i.e. 24oz chocolate, 8 oz cream.

    If I’m going to substitute the lemon with orange, how much juice and zest should I use?

    Will the lemon work well with milk chocolate? My plan was to try a semi sweet shell with a milk chocolate and lemon ganache center.

    This is so easy and so fabulous! People think you're amazing if you make this! I also used about 1/4 tsp. lemon oil to really make it have the essence of lemon. I made a chocolate cake and used this as a frosting for the middle and outside. Rave reviews all around!
