ganache with mixed chcolates?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Can you make ganache with different chocolates? Here's what I have:

8 oz. bittersweet 60% cacao

7 oz. intense dark 72% cacao

6 oz. intense dark 86% cacao

7 oz. dark 70% cacao

 

Or would it be best to use all the same, or at least the same % cacao?

It will still end up a dark chocolate ganache with those percentages, but 86% is very bitter to most palettes. It might still end up being fine because of the 60% one.

I mix dark and milk chocolate sometimes to make ganache and its just fine, as long as you adjust the ratio to account for the milk choc.
