A rich dark chocolate and butter icing is flavoured with the almond liqueur Amaretto to create a wonderful topping for any cake or dessert.
Ummmm...let me say that I LOVE amaretto and semi-sweet chocolate, and THIS is terrible. So bitter and so strong that I think it must be missing an ingredient - such as SUGAR. I added about 1 cup of powdered sugar mixed with a little water and then added that to the chocolate/amaretto paste - helped quite a bit. Result was a very dark, nearly bittersweet, shiny, chocolate glaze. Can't IMAGINE using the recipe as written - it has to have some type of sweetening to be palatable. - 23 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
delish! I didn't have enough amaretto so i used 1/4 cup of vanilla vodka. - 09 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This frosting is absolutely AMAZING! I don't think I could come up with a single bad thing to say about it if I tried! - 14 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
