      I love this whipped ganache. I put it on brownies and they were great. Also, you can pour an unwhipped layer on, chill it then spread a whipped layer on top of that--wicked! If don't have a beater handy, you split the recipe into quarters, you can whip it with a whisk.

      This recipe did not work for me. Everything was fine right up to the point of beating it with the mixer. The mixture appeared to curdle and did not thicken enough. It tasted delicious but looked horrible. Really ruined the appearance of my son's birthday cake. Also it was dramatically lighter in appearance than in the photos - more of a mocha color. I didn't make any changes to the ingredients so I am unsure of what went wrong but I would not make again.
