This was a good recipe to work with, but needed some tweaking. I was using it as a glaze on chocolate cupcakes. As some of the other reviewers stated this recipe can be grainy. I made mine on the stove and it was very stiff, like a bad grainy frosting. I think it really depends on your quality of chocolate and butter, elevation and your overall climate. To get rid of the grainy or thickness, ADD about a TEASPOON at a time of shortening to smooth it out. It may take a bit til you get the perfect consistency, but you will get there. Don't over do it as it can make the chocolate not set up the way you want. You can test it by using a spoon and seeing how it comes off it back in the pot. Too thick and slow, add more shortening. Too thin? Add more choc. I was doing 12 cupcakes. This recipe would probably make 16. I dipped sliced apples in my left overs :)
