Oh my, this was a total flop and I'm not sure why! I followed the recipe exactly but all I got was a curdled, brownish liquid that was about the consistency of a very thin gravy (after beating for about 15 minutes). I was so hoping this would work as I forgot to buy whip cream and I needed it for dessert tonight. Oh well, I guess I'll save on the extra calories from the whip cream!

Very Good. My family loved it. It was more like a sauce than a whip topping. I will it make again.
