When using dark chocolate, the ratio of chocolate to cream is 2:1 .
Our preferred quantities are 4oz dark chocolate and 1/2 cup cream.
As dark chocolate has more cocoa ( we advise you to use dark chocolate which has at least 65-70 percent cocoa solids).
The quantities when using different types of chocolate differs.
Milk chocolate – 3 parts chocolate to 1 part cream: 6 oz chocolate and 1/2 cup cream.
White chocolate – 4 parts chocolate to 1 part cream: 8 oz chocolate and 1/2 cup cream.
