White Chocolate and Amaretto Frosting

I love the flavor of Amaretto but this was actually my first time combining it with white chocolate.  We had these cupcakes for dessert last night and will be having them again tonight. 

6oz. white baking chocolate
1/3c. Amaretto liqueur
1/2c. butter
1c. confectioner's sugar

1.  In a small saucepan, add white chocolate and Amaretto.  Cook over Low heat, stirring continuously, until chocolate is melted.

2.  Add butter and stir until melted.  I cut the butter into Tablespoons and added it that way to cut down on cooking time.

3.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  I just put the whole thing in the refrigerator for about an hour.

4.  1/4c at a time, stir in the confectioner's sugar, adding more or less until your desired consistency is achieved. 

Yields enough to frost 12 regular-size cupcakes.
Served over Devil's Food cupcakes.

Cheers!
