5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
5 ounces milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2-1/4 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
9 tablespoons sour cream
Place chopped chocolates in a microwave safe bowl and place in the Cuisinart Convection Microwave Oven with Grill and microwave on half power (PL 5) for 2 minutes and stir. Continue microwaving on half power in 20 second increments, stirring frequently until melted.
Once the chocolate has melted add the butter and the vanilla and mix together with a Cuisinart hand mixer. Once ingredients are incorporated, mix in the salt and the sifted sugar about ½ cup at a time. Once all the sugar has been incorporated, beat the mixture on speed 3. Add the sour cream one-tablespoon at a time until mixture comes together as a silky frosting.
For best results, use the frosting the same day, before refrigerating.
