Chocolate Motherlode Frosting

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by kmdipaolo

This goes with Chocolate Motherlode Cake (Claim Jumper's Chocolate Motherlode Cake) that I posted from Claim Jumper's Restaurant in Colorado. Please note that this makes enough for a two layer cake. If you are making the six layer Claim Jumper Motherlode Cake, be sure to make 3 recipes.
