This icing is probably the most decadent icing I have ever made and for chocolate lovers not worried about calories or fat, you are going to love it. Use it on the chocolate cake recipe, the easy chocolate cake or the chocolate brownie recipe. It makes enough for the top and middle of a regular 20cm or so cake.
What you need
150g milk chocolate grated
150ml thick cream
125g light brown sugar
65g butter in small pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
In a pot on a medium to high heat add the cream and sugar and stir until the sugar has melted. Turn up the heat and allow the mixture to boil (don’t stir it) and allow to boil for 3-4 minutes until the mixture has thickened and is a distinct caramel color.
Remove from the heat, add the chocolate, vanilla essence and butter and stir until it has all melted.
That’s it, spoon the hot icing into a bowl and allow to cool for a while and then place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
I hadn’t make a cake yet so just put it between 2 Marie biscuits and I tell you there is something to be said for simple!
