Semisweet Chip Rocky Road Frosting

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by WiGal

I do not typically have milk chocolate chips so this is the Rocky Road version I use. I put this onto Sue B's Chocolate Cake. The recipe is from Chocolate from the Cake Mix Doctor. I have only used this for flat surfaces and not the sides of a cake.

This is a fabulously easy recipe. I have made it before as directed, but this time I wanted to change it up a bit. So I substituted some toasted walnuts for the peanuts, and instead of mixing them in, I sprinkled them on top. Voila, a Mississippi Mud Cake when put on top of Recipe #368082. Rich and sweet and satisfying! Thanks for posting The Doctor's great recipe.
