Chocolate Fudge Frosting Just Like Grandma Used to Make. Well as long as Grandma made really good chocolate fudge frosting.

Pin It

My Alan recently had a birthday and his cake of choice was triple chocolate cake with chocolate fudge frosting.  He is a smart boy.

This frosting is a classic and don't be surprised if you find yourself wanting to just eat it with a spoon.

Chocolate Fudge Frosting
Will frost about 24-30 cupcakes.

1 cup butter
7-8 ounces of unsweetened chocolate (you can use the squares or the powder, just make sure you follow the directions on the powder i.e. you will need more butter)
2 lbs confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar)
1 generous ;) teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of milk

Melt the chocolate and butter on low in a small sauce pot or if you have one use a double boiler.  I don't have one but I have never had a problem just using a pot for this recipe.  In your mixer combine confectioner's sugar, vanilla, and 1 cup of milk.  Blend in the melted chocolate.  Add the rest of the milk until you get the consistency you want.
Then let it stand (usually about 5 mins) and it will be ready.  The frosting will get thicker as it cools.

And since you might be wondering what is in triple chocolate cake: it is a box of chocolate cake mix, a large box of chocolate pudding, 1 cup or so mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, 4 eggs, 1 cup oil, 1 cup sour cream, and 1/2 cup of water all mixed together and baked at 350 degrees.   So basically it is really good.
