Chocolate Frosting

We celebrated my mom's birthday this weekend.  Her wish for a cake was chocolate cupcakes.  I came across this recipe for frosting on  I was worried that it would be too bitter due to the sour cream, but it was pretty good and not overly sweet.

Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting
1 c semisweet chocolate chips
4 T butter
1/2 c sour cream
1 t vanilla extract
1/4 t salt
2 and 3/4 c confectioners sugar

Melt chocolate chips and butter together.  Let cool and then lend in the sour cream, vanilla and salt.  Gradually add the sugar and mix well with mixer until smooth.

Happy Birthday, Mom!
