Chocolate Frosting

Sometimes when we are baking, especially if there are two parts to a recipe, we find one part to be perfect and the other to be, well... unsalvageable. This is the case in the recipe I am about to post. I am posting the wonderful, rich, delicious part of the recipe-the frosting-so that the next time you are making a chocolate cake, even from the box, you will have a fantastic, homemade frosting to go on it. There is nothing better than making a box cake your own by adding homemade touches. You will love this frosting so much you might find that you don't even need the cake.
Chocolate Frosting
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 tbl butter, at room temp

Put the chocolate chips and the heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl, cook for 1-2 min, stiring every 30 seconds until chips are melted (cover bowl loosely with a paper towel). Add the vanilla and let cool. When mixture is cool, add butter and mix with an electric mixer until thick. Spread on cake of your choice.
