Prep 3 hrs
Cook 35 mins
This recipe appeared in the February 2006 issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine. Mrs. Milman also made her famous Chocolate cake on Martha's show recently and I have posted the recipe for that as well. It does take a bit longer to set than specified. Be patient and you will be well rewarded. The prep time of 3 hours includes the 2 hour (or more) refrigeration time. When Mrs. Milman made the cake and frosting on the show Martha's kitchen staff decided to add the light corn syrup (for sheen).....Mrs. Milman said she does not. Either way, it's a great frosting.
- Put chocolate and cream into a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat; stirring constantly with a heatproof rubber spatula, until thick, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in corn syrup.
- Transfer to a large, wide metal bowl. Refrigerate until frosting is cool enough to spread, about 2 hours, checking and stirring every 15 minutes. Use immediately.
