1/2 cup unsalted, softened butter

8 ozs softened cream cheese

4 ozs semi-sweet, melted chocolate (see below)

3 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbs milk


Beat butter and cream chees until creamy.  Add chocolate, sugar, vanilla and milk and beat until the icing is smooth.

To melt the chocolate:

Put the chocolate in a double boiler.  If you don’t have a double boiler, put water in a sausepan and bring water to a simmer.  Next, put the chocolate in a metal bowl and place it over the saucepan with gently simmering water.  Do not let the bowl with the chocolate touch the water.

This can be used for your homemade cupcake recipe and you can dress up your cupcakes for a party or a picnic.
