Chocolate for ganache

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

What chocolate does everyone prefer for their ganache? I found a site that has pretty decent prices on there chocolate, although the shipping was a little much.

I know a lot of people say Callebaut is the best, but I was wondering if anyone has used Guittard white chocolate or Merckens Yucatan Dark Chocolate. These are more in my price range at the moment.

Thanks so much!

Tammy, or

I have been using 3lb bags of ghiradelli that I bought at SAMs. But they stopped carrying and it is quite expensive in the 11.5 oz bags. I was just wondering if anyone had used those other brands. Especially the white chocolate, as I have heard that it could be temperamental. Thanks
