- 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 to 8 tablespoons milk
In a double boiler over hot water melt chocolate with the butter. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. In an electric mixer add chocolate mixture and confectioners' sugar. Beat until mixture resembles chalky beads. Add the vanilla and the milk 1 tablespoon at a time until a spreadable consistency is reached. Beat until fluffy -- adding more milk if necessary.
