This is a very rich chocolate frosting, flavored with almond liqueur. A frosting like this will make anything taste good!

Ummmm...let me say that I LOVE amaretto and semi-sweet chocolate, and THIS is terrible. So bitter and so strong that I think it must be missing an ingredient - such as SUGAR. I added about 1 cup of powdered sugar mixed with a little water and then added that to the chocolate/amaretto paste - helped quite a bit. Result was a very dark, nearly bittersweet, shiny, chocolate glaze. Can't IMAGINE using the recipe as written - it has to have some type of sweetening to be palatable.

This frosting is absolutely AMAZING! I don't think I could come up with a single bad thing to say about it if I tried!
