I use my regular crusting buttercream and add chocolate to it. icon_smile.gif I sometimes add a little more fat and a little more liquid, but I have made it with cocoa powder, melted chocolate chips, melted candy melts...

I use Indydebi's "crisco" based BC... then add in Cocoa powder to desired color/ taste the darker the color the better the taste!! I personally am not a fan of frostings in general.... butt his is to die for!
