1/2 cup butter, softened
3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/4 cup Grand Marnier (orange liqueur) or orange juice
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar, sifted


Beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy. Add chocolate, Grand Marnier, and whipping cream; beat well. Gradually add sugar, beating at high speed 5 minutes or until spreading consistency.

Note: Grand Marnier is a brandy-based French liqueur flavored with orange peel. It pairs particularly well with chocolate. Other orange liqueurs or orange juice would work in this frosting, if desired.
