Heat the Dr Pepper in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Remove from heat, stir in remaining ingredients. Cool slightly. Using an electric mixer, beat frosting until fluffy. At this point you can pour onto cake while cake is warm and let frosting soak into cake. This will make your cake have a fudge like consistency. Or you can invert cake onto plate. Whip frosting on high until light and fluffy. Frost cake as usual. The choice is yours, try it both ways!
