I love to use this ganache-style icing over flourless chocolate cake (and over regular cake when I don't have time to make buttercream!) This is a recipe I came up with of pantry ingredients and I think it is a good one!
- Melt the chocolate chips and the butter in a small heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly.
- Stir in the milk and the honey until the mixture is smooth and glossy.
- Let the chocolate cool to spreading consistency, then pour over the cake.
- Spread chocolate on top and on the sides of room temperature cake.
- Chill until set.
