I made this for Christmas dinner 2013 & it was AMAZING. Everyone LOVED it & requested the recipe!!!
We enjoyed this dessert for my husbands birthday. I found the ganache a little runny so I added more chocolate chips, next time I will decrease the amount of whipping cream drastically. I also only used about 1/3 of the mint filling without andies in it. It makes a very thick filling if you use the whole amount. Everyone enjoyed it though. I think it would be pretty garnished with more Andies.
I made this for my birthday. It was absolutely delicious. Cut it into at least 12 pieces, if not more. It was so rich, even my husband couldn't finish his 1/8 slice, and I certainly couldn't. Definitely add more peppermint extract to the filling. I added the 1/2 teaspoon called for and couldn't even taste it in the nibble of filling I tried. I didn't measure exactly how much more I added, but it was at least an extra teaspoon. The finished dessert was just about perfect, but it still could've used just a tiny bit more extract.
I made this for my daughter's 11th birthday--at her request. It is very rich, very dense, and absolutely delicious.
Awesome --very rich. A definite hit.
