6-7 ounces semisweet or milk chocolate, cut into small pieces
4 1/2 tablespoons butter
Combine the chocolate and butter in the top of a double boiler and stir over low heat until melted and combined. Cool slightly and then use to ice cake, cupcakes, etc.
Makes enough to ice top and sides of one 8 or 9-inch cake, or to ice several cupcakes.
