Rum Chocolate Frosting
Chocolate Ganache with milk
Whipped Cream Frosting
I used semi sweet chocolate chips to make this and it was a bit bitter for me, so i added some honey to it to make it little sweeter. And also the addition of honey gave a nice shine to the ganache..You can use dark, milk or white chocolate for this as well..
Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time : 5 mins

Chocolate Chips – 1 1/4 cup ( I used semi sweet )
