Whipped Ganache Frosting

Chocolate and Cream. It's a beautiful marriage that makes an amazing whipped frosting. from #dietersdownfall.comOrange and Chocolate Cake – Day two – Whipped Ganache Frosting

I Love a simple and easy frosting and I don’t think that this frosting could get any easier.

It’s just two ingredients and little bit of waiting, but that’s it. Simple.

Chocolate Ganache Frosting. Easy and Delicious. from #dietersdownfall.comI was a bit nervous of the consistency of the ganache when I pulled my container out of the fridge. It has the consistency of melted ice cream. It tasted great, but it wasn’t thick like what you would think of for traditional ganache. If you are familiar with chocolate sauces or truffles, you know that it thickens up in the fridge to a more solid state. This was just liquid.

The good news is that it whipped up great! It resulted in a light and fluffy chocolate whipped cream that tasted amazing!

      Not sure what you may have done. Melted chocolate and cream should thicken back up. Did you use the right amount and ingredients?

  11. Can I use this as a cake filling??
