How to Make CHOCOLATE VELVET FROSTING (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. If you have a double boiler, use it.

    If you don't, just use a heavy skillet and a saucepan.
  2. Fill bottom of double boiler or skillet about 1/3 full of water and heat, but do not boil.

    Turn heat down to simmer.
  3. In top of double boiler or heavy saucepan, place the chocolate morsels over hot water until melted (about 5 minutes).

    You can also do this in the microwave, but watch it carefully so that it doesn't burn or separate.

  5. Add sour cream, vanilla extract and salt and blend together.
  6. Sift and add confectioners sugar and beat until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed, and frosting is smooth and creamy.
