(recipe, Carrie Floyd)
This is an easy frosting to make and a sure hit with chocolate lovers. Use on Carrie's Chocolate Cake.
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 Tbsp. corn syrup
- ½ lb. high-quality semisweet chocolate
- 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into pieces the size of sugar cubes
- Chop chocolate finely. In a medium saucepan over moderately low heat, bring cream, sugar, and corn syrup to a boil, whisking until the sugar is dissolved.
- Remove pan from the heat and whisk in chocolate until melted. Whisk in butter until melted and the frosting is smooth. Transfer frosting to a bowl and cool, stirring occasionally, until spreadable.
