Seized Chocolate Turns Into Chocolate Crumbles

If you are trying to make chocolate frosting and then it simply hardens and crumbles and looks gross, don't panic!  That happened to me yesterday and I was so ticked off until I read where I can gone wrong. I had tried to melt chocolate chips with butter but apparently a little water got into the mix ad the chocolate "seized"... my new word of the week. I tried everything I could think of to turn this (whatever it was) back into frosting... to no avail. I even tried adding more icing sugar but that didn't work either. Finally I turned the entire bowl onto a plate and tried separating the pieces into small chunks and placed it in the fridge to see what would happen!  To my amazement, it harden turning into chocolate crumbles which  I then proceeded to  sprinkle over a scoop of ice cream which topped my chocolate chip cake. I had just created a brand new dessert!!

**No one even noticed that the cake wasn't frosted!! It was amazing and a great little treat when I'm in need of a little chocolate to pick up my mood!  J
