DIRECTIONS

  • Roughly chop the chocolate and put into a food processor.
  • Pulse briefly to chop fine.
  • Heat the cream in a saucepan just to the boiling point.
  • With the motor running, pour the hot cream into the chocolate and process until they are completely melted/blended.
  • Transfer the frosting to a bowl.
  • If you plan to use it immediately, chill the frosting by placing it over a bowl of ice or let it cool at room temperature.
  • It must be cool, not cold, to be spreadable.
  • Once cooled, the frosting can be whipped to create a lighter frosting variation or used as is.
  • Refrigerate the cake after applying the frosting.
  • Makes enough to frost a 2 layer cake, about 2-1/2 cups.
