I used this on Kittencal's recipe #163236 and it was enjoyed by DS's recreation group. Thank you for 2 great recipes Kittencal. Made for Recipe Swap #14 - March 2008.

Really excellent chocolate icing. I added about 2 extra ounces of chocolate because I had it and decided to use all of it. It was more like a milk-chocolate icing - not too dark but very, very nice. My Greek guests, who had never had an icing of this sort (ganache is big here) LOVED it and kept eating more cake just to have more icing.
