" Perfect" Chocolate Frosting

15 mins (cooking 15)

This is now one of my favorite chocolate frostings. I got it from "The Chocolate Cake Mix Doctor" by anne byrn. I have made a few changes to the recipe. Actually, I didn't have the 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips that the original recipe called for. Lennie came to the rescue (thanks!) by figuring out the appropriate amount of semisweet squares to use, which I did have on hand. Now I always make it with the squares instead of the chips. This frosting is very thick, creamy, and fudgy. I usually bake two 9-inch layers, cut them into four layers, and slather this frosting on each and every layer and all over the top and sides--because I like a little cake with my frosting :) Another thanks goes out to leeannr for making me post this recipe. Now she loves it as much as I do.
