A simple and delicious chocolate icing. Great on top of my family's all-time favorite Truffle Cookies, the recipe for which can also be found on this site.

I wanted to use this for my Chocolate Gingerbread cut-out cookies. However, the icing was setting up too fast and forming a crust. So to adjust it for cookies, I added 3/4 cup more powdered sugar, 1 Tb more milk, and 1/2 Tb butter. I was then able to frost all my cookies perfectly well and sprinkled them with clear sparking sugar crystals (please note, the icing gets harder as the chocolate in it cools).

this is a great icing for frosting sugar cookies. It dries very quickly. I would not suggest using this for a cake or cupcakes, as it would be too hard to spread such a large amt. of it. I loved the flavor as well. Used Ghiradelli unsweetened chocolate blocks. Perfect amt. of chocolate. thanks for the easy recipe.

I used this for a chocolate bundt cake. It came out great for me the first time, I tried it.
