Chocolate Icing

Chocolate Icing is a sweet creamy chocolate spread that is generally used to top desserts such as cakes, ice cream, puddings, cookies, cupcakes and other desserts. It can be used as a dip for coating fruit, confections and for making ganache. The traditional butter cream can also be used for making this frosting. Fruits, nuts, candy or other suitable ingredients may be included in the basic chocolate icing recipes for more sophisticated dessert glazes.
