This recipe is also an adaptation from my KitchenAid booklet. It's almost dairy free. I didn't have corn syrup so I used sweetened condensed milk in it's place.
I used 'I Can't Believe it's not Butter' sticks for my frosting. It's dairy free and I think tastes a lot better than margarine. Maybe it's the same thing and I'm dillusional. Could be.
Whip the butter and sweetened condensed milk together. Slowly add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time until completely combined.
Add 1/4 cup melted chocolate. Choose anything you like, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. However, the sweeter you go the more rich your frosting will be. After the chocolate is combined, mix for about 1 minute then stop and scrape the bowl. Turn back on to a medium speed and give it a good spin for a couple of minutes. The fluffier the better!
Spread on with a knife, or however you please.
