  1. In a pot or double boiler, melt chocolate chips over low heat.
  2. When chips are completely melted, transfer into a small bowl and let cool for about 10 minutes.
  3. Add palm shortening to melted chocolate and blend with a hand mixer until combined.
  4. Quickly pour over cake and spread to frost while it is still warm; when it cools it hardens to a ganache.

    I didn’t have any palm oil shortening so I substituted with lard and everyone kept saying how buttery the icing tasted lol Can’t wait to try it ail the palm oil :)

    When you tick the “sugar free” box this recipe still comes up.

      That’s odd – it’s flagged as “contains sugar.” Should be ok now!
