  • Yield: 2 3/4 cups
  • Hands-on: 20 Minutes
  • Total: 1 Hour, 10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (12-oz.) package semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Preparation

Pour water to depth of 1 inch into bottom of a double boiler over medium-high heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer; place chocolate and salt in top of double boiler over simmering water. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until melted. Add sweetened condensed milk; cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until blended and smooth. Remove from heat; add butter and vanilla, and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until smooth. Let cool to room temperature (about 45 minutes). Transfer to a bowl. Gradually add cream to chocolate mixture, and beat with an electric mixer at high speed 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth and the consistency of a thick buttercream frosting. Use immediately.

Note:

For best results, use premium chocolate morsels. We tested with Ghirardelli Chocolate Premium Semi-Sweet Baking Chips.
