Have made fairy cakes in bake-cake-wraps (paper things) and need to pour some chocolate icing on and then drop some of those little silver balls (or something) on top.

How do I make that I kind of icing please?! Just melt chocolate with a bit of added ????

TIA.

You can make a chocolate ganache - and yes that would involve melting chocolate and adding a bit of cream or butter. Some recipes, you pour the hot cream onto the chocolate to melt it. I did that last week and it split. Such a waste of chocolate sad

For cupcakes, adding butter is probably easiest - iirc about 25g of butter to a 100g bar of chocolate. Just melt the chocolate then stir the butter in.
