    A fast chocolate frosting. I am posting this so that you don't have to go through lots of cake recipes when you just want a chocolate frosting for something you have made. :)

      So sorry, but this just didn't work for me. While I REALLY appreciate the ease of making it, it didn't have any of the properties of frosting that I was looking for; it didn't harden, so it made it very difficult to store the cupcakes I put this on. It also tasted exactly like chocolate chips to me (duh! :-)), which was just too much semisweet chocolate -- it overwhelmed the cupcake that was sitting underneath it. But that's just me! Maybe I'm finally losing my passion for chocolate as I get older .... NOT!!! Thanks for posting this.

      I use 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate & 1 cup sour cream. Optional you can dissolve 1 to 2 tsp instant coffee powder in 1 1/2 tsp hot water and add to the mix. I also microwave the chocolate to melt (medium power). This is EASY and delicious!

      Just the right sweetness. I think I'll try it with Hershey's dark choco chips. Thanks for posting
