In a saucepan, boil the cream with the glucose. In a mixing bowl, melt the chocolate. Gradually pour the hot cream and glucose over the melted chocolate in several additions, mixing well with spatula before adding more liquid. Finish with an immersion blender to ensure a smooth texture. When the ganache is between 95-100°F (35-38°C), add the softened butter and process again with the immersion blender until fully incorporated. In order not to destabilize the emulsion, once the mixture is done and before it is fully crystallized, pour the ganache in frames (lined with a guitar sheet) at a temperature between 95-100°F (35-38°C) for dark chocolate, 86-95°F (30-35°C) for milk chocolate and 80-82°F (27-28°C) for white chocolate. Keep the ganache frames between 61-64°F (16-18°C) and 60% humidity.
After 48 hours of crystallization, flip over the ganache frames and remove the guitar sheet. Cut into the desired shape. If possible, allow the ganache to crystallize an additional 24 hours before coating or enrobing.
