Rich Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 11 oz. semisweet chocolate, cut into chunks
  • 7 oz. milk chocolate, cut into chunks
  • 2 cups full fat sour cream
  • 2 oz. (4 Tablespoons) butter (at room temperature)
  • salt
  1. Combine the chocolate chunks in a bowl and melt in the microwave, 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each round until the chocolate is melted.
  2. Add the sour cream, and stir until combined. Beat in the butter. Salt to taste (I find that something very sweet and rich, like frosting, benefits from some salt, but taste it and decide how much to add.)
  3. Use right away to frost the cake - if you must refrigerate the frosting, let it soften before frosting the cake.
