  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease and line three 8-inch round cake pans with parchment paper.

  6. Let cool 2 hours before whipping with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  7. Stack cooled brownie layers on a plate, spreading a different variety of ganache between each layer. Serve chilled.
