Chocolate Fudge Frosting
- 110g butter
- 90g baking chocolate
- 425g icing sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 175ml milk
Prep:20min › Cook:15min › Ready in:35min
- Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave, or in the top of a double boiler. In a large bowl, combine icing sugar, vanilla and 120ml of the milk. Blend in the melted chocolate mixture. Add remaining milk, a little at a time, until desired consistency is achieved.
- Let stand until spreadable (frosting will thicken as it cools). Spread on cooled cake.
I wanted a chocolate fudge topping for cupcakes. I like the look of this in the picture but in the end decided to coat the top of the cakes whilst the mix was warm. It gave a lovely smooth glossy finish, looked very porfessional. There was a lot of mix left after covering 12 cakes, so I have put it in the fridge, I will try to warm it in the microwave to reuse. Thanks for the recipe. - 08 Oct 2011
Didn't work for me. far too runny and I didn't use even half of the milk. Didn't get thicker even putting in the fridge didn't help. Looking for a recipe like Betty Crocker's choc Fudge icing; one I can pipe onto cupcakes. - 27 May 2013
Used this to cover my daughters birthday cake. Very smooth, nice finish and tasted delish! - 08 Jan 2012
