  • 12 ounce package semi sweet mini morsels the mini chips melt better, than the full size
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream


  • Pour cream into a large microwave safe bowl and microwave for 3 - 4 minutes until it starts lightly simmering.  Watch closely to make sure it doesn't scald. 
  • Alternately, bring cream to a light simmer on the stovetop. 
  • Pour in chocolate chips and whisk or blend until smooth and fully incorporated. This is easily done with a stick blender or electric mixer, but can be done by hand as well. 
  • Use immediately to glaze, or allow it to come to room temperature (this will take several hours, so plan accordingly) and use as a more traditional frosting.
