Excellent! The only change I made was to add 2 Tbsp. corn syrup to the ganache after I removed it from the heat. The frosting was creamy, smooth, and shiny...just what I was looking for. When it's chilled it tastes like the filling in a truffle.
How wicked is this!! melted chocolate in microwave, then added butter and cream last. Used freshly brewed coffee with teaspoon of sugar to balance the bitterness instead of alcohol. I bought dark chocolate with 70% coco content. Very easy to do...
Excellent consistency. I do not like bittersweet chocolate so I used semisweet because my husband likes the semi. Not a fan of semisweet either. It was ok for me but he loved it. Next time I'm going to use Milk Chocolate for a sweeter flavor. I did not use the liquor as I do not like that flavor.
Rich and Delicious! I added 2 tbsp of light corn syrup when I removed it from the heat as suggested by another reviewer and used Frangelico because I did not have any brandy. I used this on the Cream Filled Cupcakes from this site. I can't wait to use it again with other recipes.
I tried this recipe and wound up having to add about 3/4 box of confectioner's sugar in order to achieve an icing-like consistency. That said I love the smooth texture and the taste is great. I didn't have brandy so I used Godiva chocolate liqueur and Grand Marnier. Yummy!
this is my favorite icing ever! you can use it on so many things! it went incredibly well on jan's chocolate cake. i used amaretto instead of brandy which turned out delicious and you can pretty much substitute any licquor. highly recommended.
