What do you mean it's too much? If it's too rich then any sort of chocolate icing will be the same. If it's too sweet then milk chocolate will make it worse.
If it's too bitter then milk chocolate would work, but I'd be inclined to go for white chocolate and put some sharp berries on as well to cut through it.

Then milk or white would be fine.
Maybe just fudge icing?

I do melted sugar and butter, with icing sugar and a bit of milk.

Use the Mary Berry Sunday Best chocolate fudge cake icing recipe:
For the fudge icing:

55g/2oz hard margarine
25g/1oz cocoa powder, sifted
About 2 tbsp milk
225g/8oz icing sugar, sifted.

Make the icing: melt the margarine in a small pan, add the cocoa powder and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the milk and icing sugar. Beat well until smooth. Cool a little until the icing is of spreading consistency.
