Tips & Tricks for perfecting Easy Chocolate Frosting
The butter can be either salted or unsalted
I prefer using semi-sweet chocolate chips, but other chips work too
Sometime chocolate chips don’t like to melt well. In this case, go ahead and use the frosting even though there are little bits of chips not melted. I suggest you decorate on top with nuts, chips etc.
This is a great frosting to use if you plan to decorate with sprinkles, nuts, candies etc. Have your kids help you make a fun creation
This frosting is great to use for holiday cakes or brownies – just add whatever topping you like
Don’t forget that cakes and brownies with this frosting are great served with ice cream
