or for strawberry dipping.. my new favorite use.

2. while the chocolate mixture is cooling, mix sour cream, vanilla, orange juice, and zest in a large bowl.
3. beat chocolate mixture into sour cream mixture, add 3 cups of powdered sugar, beating until smooth. gradually add remaining powdered sugar until desired consistency.

Oh, I should make some of this for the next strawberries I buy! The funny thing is that yesterday I was going to post a photo almost exactly like this one (only with home made whipped cream on the strawberry) as the photo for my week's menu plan. When I saw that you had it here, I decided to save it for later just in case anyone clicked over to my blog from here. It just occurs to me that it would have been funny if I had gone ahead and used it. I guess we were on a similar wavelength.
