Actually, I hate sour cream. And cream cheese. But when you use it as a cooking ingredient, I don’t mind it. I have to say, that’s the best thing about this recipe that you CAN’T taste the sour cream. Sorry, I’m weird. I have to say, this is definitely my go to frosting when using chocolate. REAL CHOCOLATE. Since the Kid can only have cocoa, it’s rare that this is made – but if I am baking gifts – this is really the way to go. Perfect, just sweet enough, and so easy.
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 a stick of butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan, stirring well. Let cool, then stir in the sour cream, vanilla and salt.
Put this in a mixing bowl, and beat – adding the confectioners’ sugar, slowly. Beat on high for 1 minute until the frosting is fluffy and ready to use.
