Chocolate Fortune Frosting


  • 2 1/2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. hot water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup soft butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Melt chocolate in mixing bowl over hot water. Remove from heat and blend in sugar and water. Beat in egg; add butter and vanilla. Frosting will be thin at this point, so place bowl in ice water and beat until it is of spreading consistency.
