Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips:
  • I recommend using semi-sweet mini chocolate chips for this recipe. If you cannot find mini-chocolate chips use the regular size, but make sure they are "semi-sweet".
  • Use an oven mitt or towel when removing the melted frosting from the microwave because the bowl gets very hot in the microwave.
  • Use this frosting for cakes, cupcakes, sandwich cookie filling, and cookie frosting.
