12 (1 ounce) squares
semisweet chocolate, chopped
butter, cut into pieces
delish! I didn't have enough amaretto so i used 1/4 cup of vanilla vodka.
Ummmm...let me say that I LOVE amaretto and semi-sweet chocolate, and THIS is terrible. So bitter and so strong that I think it must be missing an ingredient - such as SUGAR. I added about 1 cup of powdered sugar mixed with a little water and then added that to the chocolate/amaretto paste - helped quite a bit. Result was a very dark, nearly bittersweet, shiny, chocolate glaze.
Can't IMAGINE using the recipe as written - it has to have some type of sweetening to be palatable.
This frosting is absolutely AMAZING! I don't think I could come up with a single bad thing to say about it if I tried!
My 21 year old son says, "It's the greatest frosting ever made in the history of ever!" We put it on Chocolate cake V. Fabulous combination!
This frosting is EXCELENT! I used it for a filling between a chocolate cake. I did add 2 cups of powdered sugar then refridgerated it. Very good!
i loved this recipe! i thought that the amaretto was going to be too overpowering, but it was spot on! this recipe is definately a keeper! :D
This was so easy and turned out quite well! Great recipe.
I made this with White Chocolate, beyond awesome!
