Recipe Ingredients for Dark Chocolate Frosting

10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 pound powdered sugar
8 ounces powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream

Recipe Directions for Dark Chocolate Frosting

  1. Melt and cool chocolate until just slightly warm.

  2. Beat butter until light and fluffy. With mixer on low speed, gradually add powdered sugar. Add salt, vanilla and sour cream and mix until very smooth. Add chocolate and mix until just incorporated.
