Posted by dimensionsincakeI discovered this recipe by accident! While making chocolate rolled buttercream, I noticed that before I finished adding all the sugar called for in the recipe, it looked like a rich, dark fudge icing. So I decided to try it, and it works beautifully. So easy, too, because there is not cooking!
- 1 c. Crisco 1 c. corn syrup 1/2 tsp. fine-grain salt 1/2 tsp. vanilla 3/4 - 1 c. cocoa 8 drops butter flavor 1 lb. powdered sugar 2-3 tbsp. water
Cream first six ingredients together in Kitchen Aid mixer. Add sugar gradually, adding water 1 tablespoon at a time as needed until desired consistency. Beat smooth. Fills and frosts an 8" round two-layer cake.
