This recipe was originally for buttercream shots, but since i'm not much of a fan of a mouth full of frosting I began to used it as a quick cheat to when i need to frost a cake in a hurry and nicely. I hope you all like, and I have added some alternatives at the bottom for those who would like something other than chocolate.
