READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Jen T

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.


  1. Heat the chocolate chips in a bowl over hot water until melted.
  2. Remove from heat and beat in sour cream.
  3. Easy!
  4. Use for on cakes, cookies, muffins or whatever you fancy.
