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.

  6. Firstly, your regularly scheduled installment ought to be something that you can easily pay. Regardless of the possibility that you are certain that you can make the installment in view of no issue at this moment, keep that there are many variables that can influence your capacity to make that installment long haul. Beginning a family, school educational cost, retirement, paying off obligations, beginning a business, and voyaging or get-aways are only a couple of things that can definitely increment or reduction what you can easily spend on a home. https://www.usacheckcashingstore.com/san-diego
