  1. Cream the butter until light and fluffy.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Add the sugar gradually to the egg whites, beating all the while. Add in the whipped butter. The frosting may clump at this point if the butter is at all chilled. Don't worry, it just means that the frosting will require more beating. Beat until smooth.
  3. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave. Cool slightly; the chocolate should still be fairly warm. Beat into the butter frosting.

Did not turn out at all. Ended up with what looked like cottage cheese. I beat it for 15 minutes and gave up.

I found this to be a little heavy on the butter flavor. Next time I make it I will probably cut back on the butter by at least 1/2 cup and adjust from there. It made it VERY rich. I would lik...

I must've done something wrong, because I excpected this frosting to be "fluffier". However, to bring it to the thickness and fluffiness I desired, I just added powdered sugar. The results were ...

I give it three stars, daughter (11) gives it four. It's light, slightly creamy, has that little specks of chocolate like the description says. Didn't love it, but it frosted the cake. Tastes...

Very good flavor though my kids thought it too chocolatey (just their preference) so I will either use less chocolate next time or milk chocolate instead of semisweet. My only problem was with ...
