This was easy to make and worked wonderfully, it was very quick to whip with my electric mixer. And it spread like a dream. It's my new favorite! I used dark chocolate chips and whipping cream.
My guests RAVED about the whipped ganache. It was so creamy & light. My husband doesn't like real sweet frosting so he LOVED it. I used it as a filling and on the top, which was perfect. I didn't not frost the sides of my cut-out cake...and showing off that thick filling made everyone anxious to cut into it!
I followed this recipe to the letter and i ended up with ganache soup. So upsetting. What are you referring to when you state 2 cups of heavy cream... Like 2 tablespoons!? I measured everything properly and the amount of chocolate and it is just disgustingly liquidy.
Excellent concept, though i tweaked this recipe a bit: i used 14 oz. dark chocolate and 1 1/2 cups of cream before refrigerating, then when i whipped it, i added the remaining 1/2 cup of cream, which made it very easy to whip and spread. I used this recipe to frost a Black Magic Cake (Black Magic Cake With Voodoo Frosting) to make an amazingly chocolatey extravaganzza!! thanks for posting!
