This was a wonderful cake! Wasn't too hard to make and turned out perfect the first time. Instead of using the whipping cream for the topping, I folded a teaspoon of almond extract into a tub of Cool Whip with the chopped nuts and it was delicious.
One tip is to warm the whipping cream to room temperature before wisking it into the melted chocolate chips (wisking very fast and adding the cream very slowly), this helped keep it smooth. Adding the cream while it was cold made the chocolate sieze up a little and made more of a ganache than a smooth mixture. However, I still crumbled it into the whipped cream and got gooey chocolate bits inside the cream...... YUM! I almost liked it better that way than when I got it right with the second cake! ;)
