Ok recipe as written, but extremely sweet. To cut sweetness, I did a few things differently. Gently brown the butter over low heat, add a heaping Tbsp flour. and 1 Tbsp good quality cocoa powder (NOT hot cocoa powder), and then add the chocolate chips. Heat thru and stir until all chips are melted. Next, instead of waiting until mixture cools, just let it sit for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, then add the powdered sugar before everything else. Stir to combine well (adding to still warm butter/chocolate mixture helps to soften the sugar crystals so that frosting is less "grainy" in texture), then add the vanilla and salt. Add the sour cream last, a little at a time, until you have desired tartness to sweetness.
