Hedonist Lovers Chocolate Frosting

Related topics: ,

This frosting is so good you’re going to want to… I don’t even know… Kiss a stranger, giggle, have a food-gasm. This is my most requested frosting, and it’s so easy it’s ridiculous. People compare it to ganache because of the smooth texture and richness, but it’s just a good old fashioned chocolate frosting. Enjoy, my chocolate fiends.

Makes 32 servings.

(I normally half this recipe when I’m making one cake. For a big batch of cupcakes I would use the whole recipe, as I pile on the frosting.)

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Butter, softened (If you are planning on substituting something for the butter then you are on the wrong website. We don’t do that here.)
  • 9 Cups powered sugar
  • 2.5 Cups cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (Seriously, spend the extra $3 for real vanilla. It really makes a difference.)
  • 1 Cup Milk

Directions

  1. In a large bowl beat butter until it is creamy.
  2. Add cocoa and beat until smooth. Slowly add in powered sugar alternating with some milk and the teaspoon of vanilla.
  3. Cover your bowl and mixer with a big kitchen towel. This stuff will go everywhere. I promise, it’s not that you’re a crappy baker. Every bakery and restaurant I’ve ever worked I have to do this. Powdered sugar is a bitch to work with.
  4. Grab whatever you’re going to frost and get crazy. I suggest the chocolate cake recipe here.

I love ya’ll more than butter. Happy baking!!
