Chocolate Frosting


6 oz. semisweet chocolate
2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
1 egg yolk at room temperature
1 t. pure vanilla
1 1/4 cups sifted confectioners sugar

Chop chocolate and place in bowl over pan of simmering water. Stir until just melted and set aside until cooled to room temperature.

Beat butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg yolk and vanilla and continue beating for 3 more minutes. Gradually add confectioners sugar and beat until smooth and creamy. Add chocolate and mix until blended. Spread immediately on cooled cake.

Lauren, Katie and Tamara say this is a keeper.
