Yes, it is... and I love Toba's glaze. I saw that "chocolate royal icing" is rated bad. Maybe I was thinking some form of melted chocolate would be great???? I just want good looking and tasty too.

I made rolled chocolate sugar cookies that are not too sweet... so icing is definitely needed.

Anyone else with tried and true experience?

I have never made it, but here's a link to SweetSugarbelle's Chocolate Royal Icing:

I trust her with anything sweet! (Also, I'd think the ganache would set well enough to stack. Maybe modelling chocolate?)

Thanks! I may try it myself. I saw a similar recipe posted here, but it had only 5 of 10 stars in the review....That was the original idea, so I may just have to go for it. icon_biggrin.gif

Ganache will not set up well enough to stack them and chocolate will get scuffed very easily (though do-able).

I just did some last week and made a chocolate royal icing of just powdered sugar, egg whites, a little vanilla, and cocoa powder. I just do it to consistency - no recipe. Worked great icon_smile.gif

I made super bowl football cookies one year and didn't use a recipe, but add enough cocoa powder to regular RI until I got the color I wanted and they were delicious.

Thanks ladies... and that's more or less what I did. Added a little corn syrup to get a smoother spread-ability. So far, so good...now dry time. Fingers crossed!
