2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups heavy cream
2 tsp vanilla
Notes/Story: Place chocolate chips in a large bowl. Pour the cream into a saucepan and bring to a boil. As soon as the cream boils up to the top of the pan, quickly remove it from the heat and pour it over the chocolate chips. Let stand for a minute or two then stir with a whisk until smooth. Stir in the vanilla until well blended. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface and allow to cool at room temperature.
I'm not sure about that last sentence, because when I made it, I poured it directly on a chocolate cake. This frosting is very rich, creamy, and smooth. So good!
