  Extra-Rich Fudge Frosting
by jessicadf

5 oz semisweet chocolate, cut up
1 oz unsweetened chocolate
2 tb coffee or water
1/2 cup sugar
4 large egg yolks
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 sticks (8 oz) butter, softened and cut up

1. In medium glass bowl, combine semisweet and unsweetened chocolate and coffee (or water). Microwave on medium 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until coffee is hot. Whisk coffee and chocolate together until completely smooth.

2. In a double boiler over simmering water, whisk together sugar and egg yolks. Cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened and coats the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Add vanilla.

3. Add chocolate to egg mixture and beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until completely cooled, about 5 minutes. Beat in butter, 1 piece at a time, blending well after each addition, until smooth and spreadable.

On this particular cake, my niece requested chocolate dipped strawberries as the decoration.
