Dark Chocolate Fudge Icing

Dark Chocolate Fudge Frosting

6 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup butter, at room temperature
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla

In a large bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add confectioners’ sugar and continue to beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla, beat 30 seconds. Add cooled chocolate and and beat 1-2 minutes. Icing should look glossy and smooth.

Covers a 2 layer cake or about 24 cupcakes.

Excellent with the Dark Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake of Love.

My thoughts:
The best, most chocolate-y icing ever. I wish I could eat a bowl of it every day.
