When I hear the word “syrup,” I – like most people, probably – immediately think “maple,” but this recipe from Laura in the Kitchen makes a pretty good argument for making that “chocolate” instead. She makes a sweet, creamy homemade version and then pours it over chocolate chips to create the best version of a popular dessert favorite. What is it? Watch to find out!

You’ll Need Just:

– 1/2 cup heavy cream
– 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
– 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
– 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
– 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips

That’s right— Mocha Fudge Chocolate Frosting! Yum! I love this technique of using the syrup created by the rest of the ingredients to melt the chocolate chips, rather than melting them in the microwave or a double boiler. The result is a creamy, chocolatey frosting like no other! What do you think of it? Have you tried similar recipes before? Get the written recipe here, then tell us if you try it!
