Glossy Chocolate Frosting

This frosting is perfect for any Brownies or bars, but is especially wonderful on my Mocha Brownies!


Start with three – one ounce squares of baking chocolate.  Melt in a sauce pan with shortening.  Be sure to stay close and stir, chocolate scorches easily.


Add milk, mixture will thicken almost immediately.


Remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla or Kahlua.


Frosting will be smooth and wonderfully shiny!  Spread on your favorite brownies or cake, enjoy!
