Best Chocolate Frosting

Best Chocolate Frosting

Ok, it's spring today in the Virginia Blue Ridge so DH and I had the first cookout of the season so I had to make a cake. I found the recipe for the frosting in Judy Rosenberg's Baking book which is fabulous!

Melt 4 oz unsweetened chocolate in a double boiler. Let it cool briefly.

In a blender, mix 2/3 cup evaporated milk and 1 cup sugar for about 2 seconds. Add the melted chocolate and blend on high speed until the mix is thick and creamy and the blender tone changes (mine goes from a low bubbly sound to a high-pitched whine). Spoon the frosting into a bowl, let it sit for about 30 minutes, then cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit for an hour or so. Do not refrigerate.

I varied this by using Scharfenberger bitter-sweet chocolate and about 1/3 cup sugar. I spread it on a Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake which I doctored up with a ton of Penzey's vanilla, some dried egg and some cardamom. There is none left. And mind you, this is from someone who doesn't particularly like dark chocolate.
