Ingredients

  1. Check 1pound semisweet chocolate, chopped
  2. Check 2cups heavy cream
  3. Check pinch kosher salt

Directions

  1. Place the chocolate in a large heatproof bowl. In a medium saucepan, bring the cream to a bare simmer. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate, add the salt, and let stand for 2 minutes. Whisk until melted and smooth. Let cool, stirring occasionally, until thick and spreadable, 4 to 5 hours. (Note: Don’t try to speed the cooling process by putting the frosting in the refrigerator; it will become lumpy.)
