This is a great fudge-y frosting for topping cookies, frosting cakes or just eating with a spoon. What? Doesn’t everyone do that? Today, I piped it on top of my Melt-in-your-mouth Shortbread. I also used the extra to slap between two graham crackers – a super easy family favorite treat.
2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 egg white
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Melt chocolate and butter in mixing bowl over small heavy saucepan with an inch of simmering water (double boiler); stir to blend.
- Remove from heat. Beat in powdered sugar. Beat in egg white and vanilla, adding a little water, if necessary, to make smooth, slightly soft frosting.
