Use this Chocolate-Sour Cream Frosting as a topping on vanilla or pumpkin cake, or for true chocoholics, try this easy sour cream frosting on chocolate cake. For a refreshing twist, try our minty sour cream frosting variation.
In a large saucepan melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring frequently. Cool for 5 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until smooth. This frosts tops and sides of two 8- or 9-inch cake layers. (Halve the recipe to frost a 13x9x2-inch cake.) Cover and store frosted cake in the refrigerator.
Prepare as above except stir in 1/2 teaspoon mint extract with the sour cream.
