This chocolate fudge frosting is creamy and decadent and goes perfectly on cakes, brownies or cupcakes. So easy to make and so full of chocolate flavor. It is perfect for every day type desserts but it is also rich enough to be used for any special occasion.
- 4-5 cups powdered sugar
- ½ c. butter
- ½ c. milk
- ¼ c. cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Place the butter into a small pan and melt it on low heat. Once it is melted, stir in the cocoa powder and stir and heat until the powder has dissolved.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla on medium speed until the sugar is all dissolved. Slowly pour in the butter/cocoa mixture and beat on low until everything is smooth. If it is too thick, add in one teaspoon of milk at a time to thin it out a bit.
Use immediately or store covered in the refrigerator until ready to use. It will stay fresh and spreadable for up to a week.
Makes enough of this delicious frosting to frost a 9”x13” cake, 24 cupcakes or 1 two layer 8” cake.
