    The milk chocolate ganache does not set. The ratio of cream to milk chocolate is incorrect. Because milk chocolate has a higher fat content than bittersweet, you have to reduce the amount of cream by half. I found this out the hard way, since I did not research prior to making it! For 8 oz chocolate, only use 4 oz. cream. Measure chocolate by weight, not volume.
