Its a last minute cake, and I am just NOT running back to town (20 miles) I have chocolate chips here. LOL
I have used chocolate chips when it's all that I had. No problem they will work as well. I just like the unsweetened chocolate squares because I get a darker color and it doesn't add any more sugar to the icing.
I add chocolate to regular buttercream all the time. I never just make chocolate icing. I always have icing made up and I just add chocolate when needed. Like I said you'll have to add more milk...but just add teaspoon at a time till you 'get it right'.
Good luck with your cake.
I'm sure it's going to be great!
