I'm looking for a rich chocolate frosting for cupcakes. Something that Shines soft and will pipe well.

I'm right there with youicon_smile.gif I think chocolate buttercresm stinks. I have tried this one:

12ounces choc chips
14 ounce sweetened condensed milk

Melt choc chips in double boiler
Add condensed milk
Cook for 2 minutes stirring constantly
Stir until frosting is shiny and spreadable consistency
It's tasty and is basically a fudge. It was not as shiny as I would like. Many people use ganache ( equal parts chocolate and heavy cream) and let it set or whip it for piping. That's my next experiment. Oh and 1 woman put 1 tablespoon of corn syrup in her ganache. I think that might add to the shine. I hope you find a good solution and share it with usicon_smile.gif

Thx so much! I've tried the chocolate ganache, I'll try adding corn syrup to see if it stays soft.

I'll def try the condensed milk instead of heavy cream. I also want to give the chocolate Imbc a try.

If I find something better I'll post it!
