Chocolate Sour Cream Cake Frosting Recipe

This chocolate cake frosting is really easy to prepare and tastes delicious. You can use the frosting to frost cakes, cupcakes and brownies. Of course, we enjoy it most on chocolate cake or chocolate cupcakes.

This recipe is from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book.

Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting Recipe

1 (6 ounce) package semisweet chocolate pieces
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup dairy sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar

In a saucepan, melt the chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring frequently. (I find it best to stir with a nonstick silicone spatula). Cool mixture for about 10 minutes. Stir in the sour cream, vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Gradually add in the powdered sugar, beating by hand until its smooth and of spreading consistency.

This frosting will frost two 8-inch or 9-inch layer cakes.

Chocolate goes so well with everything. I can almost taste this one.
