I came across this post and had to try it.
Basically you get a bag of baking chips (chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, etc) then get a can of frosting.
Put the chips in a microwave safe bowl and put it on for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until it is all melted.
Add in the frosting and stir.
Microwave for 30 more seconds.
Put in a greased 8x8 or 9x9 pan, place in the fridge until it is set.
The flavor combos that seem to work best involve chips that "out-flavor" the frosting. I've tried Ghirradeli's bittersweet chocolate chips with cream cheese frosting and it was VERY chocolaty and good. I've also tried the Chocolate/Peanut butter chips with Betty Crocker chocolate frosting with Hershey's Chocolate and it tastes like a peanut butter cup. :o)
I haven't tried adding nuts yet but I'm sure there are some really cool mixes you could make adding nuts or candy chunks.
For gift giving purposes, this would be great for a neighbor or teacher gift. Each batch is less than $5 and you could easily package them up for several people with a gift tag or card. :)
