THE best frosting. Ever. Hands down. End of story. It's pure naughty. Use it as a cupcake frosting, or my favorite is to use it inside a layered chocolate cake.
Whipped Chocolate Ganache
1/2 lb. semisweet chocolate chips
One quart heavy cream
Bring heavy cream to a boil on the stove top. Immediately remove from heat. Meanwhile, heat chocolate chips in a double boiler--meaning fill a saucepan halfway with water and bring to a simmer. Place heat proof bowl of chocolate on top of pan with hot water and stir until chips are melted.
Pour 1/4 of the cream into the chocolate chips and stir until well blended. Add the rest of the cream and refrigerate overnight or freeze for 2 hours.
Place chocolate cream mixture into a mixer and mix on high until stiff.
