This was a really tasty frosting. Very light and whipped like, almost close to jar frosting in my opinion. It nearly squirted out of my piping bag to fast and nearly had it everywhere. But I wou...

I used 1/2 cup of peanut butter instead of the chocolate and omitted the shortening. It was a perfect dip for apple slices!!!
