    FOR FROSTING: Heat the 1/4-container of ready-made frosting for 30 seconds in microwave, add butter and stir to mix. Mix sour cream and powdered sugar togehter; then add to chocolate frosting & butter mixture. Mix together well, and pour down over cooled cake. *If you make my above frosting it will be thick but still run nicely as you pour it down over the cake.
