I need a recipe for something gooey and fudgy...not necessarily something I can pipe with. I'm not really looking for a ganache or a chocolate BC, but something more like the fudgy frosting that sam's and costco has on their cakes.....

anyone know of anything?

thanks for the recipe, but I'm really looking for something that's NOT a chocolate BC.....something more fudgy, think canned chocolate frosting, but better! icon_smile.gif

Any other recipes out there?

1 stick BUTTER
1 cup cocoa
Mix this together until dry and crumbley, add more cocoa if needed. this needs to look like coarse corn meal.

Add 1 can sweetened evaporated milk (eagle brand)
cream this in until you have a nice smooth mix

Add 2 - 3 pounds powder sugar, and 1 Tablespoon vanilla

Add the sugar slowly until you have a stiff mixture. Thin with a bit of corn syrup to get to spreadable consistancy.

I make this way too often from a recipe I have lost. It just kinda is a pinch of this and dab of that. But that is basically what I do,

I use the recipe on the side of the Hershey cocoa can. Give me a bowl of that and a big spoon ..... then step away if you want to keep ALL of your fingers!
