Creamy chocolate frosting

No Taxing Recipes Today!!

For my sweetie's birthday, he wanted a dense chocolate cake with creamy chocolate frosting.  The perfect cake for him was to convert my chocolate muffin recipe (bake in a 9x13 pan for about 50 minutes), topped with this quick and easy creamy frosting.

Chocolate Frosting

5 oz unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk

Melt the chocolate on medium power in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time. Microwave the milk until just warm. Combine the two and stir until smooth. Store in the refrigerator, stirring occasionally as it cools. Allow to come to room temperature before spreading.
