This is the best chocholate frosting recipe i've ever made. It's so creamy and works great with a ganache. I do add another square of chocolate for a bit more consistancy. Also refridgerate for...

The "frosting" had a good flavor but it was not the texture of frosting at all. I could not get it to stick to the cupcakes. I instead spooned it into a graham cracker crust and topped with cool...
