chocolate fudge frosting

Yes, another chocolate frosting recipe. I think this is chocolate frosting recipe #4, though it may be #5.

Yesterday I was making cupcakes out of my golden yellow cake recipe, and decided a chocolate frosting would do well with them.

*Note: I’ve had this recipe for years and years and years. I’m not sure where it came from.

*Edited to add links to other chocolate frosting posts: here and here.


Chocolate Fudge Frosting

1 stick butter

2/3 cup cocoa

1 pound powdered sugar (about 3 2/3 cups)

1/3 cup milk, heated

1 teaspoon vanilla


Melt butter in small saucepan over low heat.

Stir in cocoa.

Continue cooking over low heat, while stirring constantly, until mixture thickens slightly. This process won’t take long.

Remove from heat and pour into mixer bowl.

Add powdered sugar alternately with warm milk, beating to spreading consistency.

Add vanilla and mix just until it is incorporated into the frosting.

Spread while warm.

*Note: There are times that I need to add additional milk. You may find that you’ll need 1/2 cup warmed milk to get it to the right consistency.
