Chocolate Frosting Recipe
I love your site and want to add my chocolate frosting recipe. This is the frosting that I use for cupcakes and brownies. It is so easy to make and it tastes really good.
What I really like is that you can use dark, milk or white chocolate with this recipe. So for one easy recipe you can get three totally different results.
4oz (125g) butter
1 1/2 cups confectioners (icing) sugar
1 tsp. vanilla essence
1oz (30g) melted chocolate
Beat butter and 3/4 cup confectioners sugar until thick and creamy.
Beat in 1 tablespoon water and the remaining confectioners sugar.
Beat in vanilla essence and melted chocolate.
Sometimes I need to vary the amount of water as it depends on whether I am using the recipe for a frosting or a filling.
Hope you enjoy.
Thanks so much for sending in your chocolate frosting recipe.
When cooking for my family I mainly use cocoa in my chocolate frosting, however, I love the richness that melted chocolate gives to a frosting. Can't wait to try this one!
