Chocolate Chip Fudge Frosting


Liquid love? Nope, that's just my chocolate chip fudge frosting.

What do to with a simple, fudgy frosting that you can make with semi-sweet chocolate chips?Anything.

My favorite places for this frosting are on top of my Chocolate Cake Cookies, and my Mississippi Mud Cake. Each ultimately becomes a vehicle for delivering fudge frosting to your mouth, which is why cake was invented. But then, you could swizzle this onto sliced apples and then sprinkle toasted almonds on top, dip graham crackers or pound cake in it, or brush your teeth with it. (well, at least some of those things)

The best thing about this frosting is that I always have what I need to make it. (Except for when I'm positive that I have powdered sugar in the pantry only to discover that I don't.) The chocolate chips melt really well, and because the butter, chocolate, and milk are warm when combined with the powdered sugar, the frosting turns out especially smooth. You could sift the powdered sugar as well, but I avoid sifting if I can. Mostly because I am impatient.

Chocolate Chip Fudge Frosting

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tbs milk 
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • dash of salt
Directions:
  1. Put powdered sugar in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a small pot or saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over a medium heat, stirring constantly.
  3. When chips are melted, add the milk. Don't worry if it seems to separate for a moment. Stir constantly until combined and smooth.
  4. Pour onto the powdered sugar. Whisk vigourously until smooth. Pour onto cakes, cookies, or directly into open mouth.
