  1. In a saucepan over low heat, combine chopped chocolate and amaretto. Stir constantly until the chocolate is almost melted, then remove from the heat and continue to stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Beat in the butter, one piece at a time until smooth. Refrigerate until frosting is of a spreadable consistency.

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.



delish! I didn't have enough amaretto so i used 1/4 cup of vanilla vodka.



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!
