Milk Chocolate Frosting
This creamy frosting is made with melted milk chocolate and sour cream for a not-so sweet frosting with an excellent texture.
  • 1 pound milk chocolate finely chopped (I used chocolate chips)
  • 440g (4 sticks) of butter, softened
  • 114g (4 oz/1 cup) icing sugar
  • pinch course salt
  • 226g (8 oz/1 cup) sour cream (I used 14%)
  1. Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave using increments of 30 seconds and stirring after every 30 seconds. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Beat together butter, sugar and salt until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes (really... go to 5 minutes, don't skimp!)
  3. Gradually beat in the chocolate, and then the sour cream until both are thoroughly incorporated.
  4. If too loose, refrigerate stirring occasionally until thickened.
Can be transferred to an airtight container and stored in the refrigerator up to 3 days. Before using let come up to room temp and beat until smooth.
