I am going to make my first whipped chocolate ganache later today, but I can't find the whisk attachment for my kitchenaid mixer. Can I just use the paddle attachment or do I need the whisk attachment?

thanks

AAAAAggggghhhhhh! You've lost your wisk? Oh, that stinks icon_sad.gif

If your not making a huge batch of ganache, I've just whipped it manually with a wire wisk in a bowl, because I was too lazy to wash out my KA. If you don't have one, I guess you could try the paddle, it doesn't take much wisking to get it to whip up fluffy.

Speaking of whipped ganache....I have seen some directions that say to whip while still warm and runny...others make a runny recipe and chill and then whip. What is the correct way to make really fluffy and almost mousse-like whipped ganache?

This recipe is delicious! It has you freeze it for a couple hours or refridgerate overnight before whipping. It turns out really thick and yummy. My hubby eats it with a spoon!

Thanks, I guess I'll just whip it by hand or use my hand mixer.
