For icing melt both the chocolate bar & chocolate chips in a double boiler. Make sure to stir constantly so the chocolate does not burn!!

Put chocolate mix in fridge for 15-30 minutes. Don't let it sit in too long or else it will harden. I made that mistake & had to heat it up a little just to whip it.
