>> whew! plus the best chocolate frosting recipe

November 12, 2007

how many kids? 25?

how many adults? 25?

how many balloons, sandwiches, gift bags? 25, 50, 25?

how tiered am i?? very…

but it was a really fun party! and everyone said it was the best chocolate frosting so here it is, the recipe for the best chocolate frosting:

DARK chocolate frosting for dark chocolate lovers:


1 cube butter, room temp

4 cubes/squares (about a half box) unsweetened chocolate

1 box powdered sugar

small SMALL!! amount liquid–choc milk or espresso preferred

Soften the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave (check every 30 seconds or so–better to have it a little lumpy than burnt)

Cut the butter into chunks in a small bowl.

On low, beat the butter adding SMALL amounts of powdered sugar at a time. (Bonus if you sift it in.)

When it gets firm, add melted chocolate. When that’s too firm, add a Tablespoon of espresso or chocolate milk and continue mixing.

Keep adding powdered sugar to your taste. Add small amounts of liquid as necessary. Any extra frosting is especially great on graham crackers.

let me know how it comes out!

    You asked for comments… I was hunting the web for best chocolate cake frosting and I liked your description and the fact that people commented that it was the best made we want to try it… but with a cake waiting and planning to serve it to others I went to a similar recipe that explained what size cube and what size box and what size chocolate cubes. Different brands offer different sizes in all three items and it looked like something that could have been a disaster if I chose the wrong size.

    It’s kinda like a ganache, very thick and rich, like the inside of a truffle. So yummy!

    The recipe is actually very flexible and soooo easy–you can always melt more chocolate to make it chocolateier or more milk to make to blend more or more powdered sugar to sweeten or thicken it up.

    But I hear what you’re saying too–that when you’ve got company coming, and you’re trying something new, you want to be sure you’re doing it right!

    So I will add some specifics in terms of ounces and that should help.

    thanks for writing!

    best, art predator
