Chocolate Frosting

This is not your 'whip together in 5 minutes' frosting, but I think it is well worth the extra effort.
Chocolate Frosting
Recipe from Our Best Bites

2/3 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. flour
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 c. milk
1 c. butter
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Melt your chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
Set it aside to cool slightly.

In a small saucepan, whisk together sugar, flour, cocoa, and milk; bring to a boil, whisking frequently.
Boil 1-3 minutes or until thickened like a thinned pudding.
Remove pan from heat and strain mixture into a small bowl to remove any lumps.
Cool completely in the refrigerator or freezer.

When chocolate flour mixture is cooled, beat the butter until creamy, about 1 minute.
Beat in the cooled chocolate mixture until well combined and fluffy, about 1 minute.
Finally add in melted chocolate and beat again until well combined and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
If desired, add additional cocoa powder to taste, up to 4 tablespoons more.
Spread or pipe frosting on to cupcakes or cake.

Makes enough to frost 24 cupcakes.
Store unused frosting in fridge and bring to room temperature before using again.
If needed, beat with an electric beater before using.
