Day 1 - Prepare the base ganache
GANACHE for HOT CHOCOLATE
Heat together and bring to the boil
Let the hot cream mixture sit on the chocolates for 3 minutes before stirring so that it melts the chocolate, then starts stirring in the center only until a vortex starts forming, then make the stirring motion wider.
Cover in cling film directly on the surface of ganache and put into the fridge overnight.
