Can anyone help me, please? I followed a recipe to make light and fluffy chocolate icing.. And it looks more like pudding before it set! lol, I dunno what went wrong here...
2C chocolate chips
1/2C butter
1C sour cream
1tsp vanilla
and 4 1/2-5c sugar.
Melt butter and chocolate, cool for 5 minutes, put in mixing bowl, add sour cream and vanilla, mix, then the powdered sugar. SUUUUPER runny..
I doubled the recipe

I'm so bummed out.. I totally just spent the last of my cash to get the 2 more pounds of p. sugar. I just wasted a cup of butter, 2 bags of chocolate, and 4 lbs of p. sugar. icon_sad.gif No mothers day cake for me icon_sad.gif

You could try putting it in the fridge to let the chocolate and butter firm up and see if that helps.
