I would do ganache. It's dark like that and the longer it cools, the firmer it becomes.

ganache! I have tried numerous "fudge" recipes and found none as chocolatey at ganache. you can also mix it in to buttercream for chocolate buttercream.

The frosting used on those cupcakes is a chocolate fudge frosting from the book "125 Best Cupcakes" by Julie Hasson. Unfortunately I dont have the book or the recipe but im sure you could find it if you search online.

The chocolate fudge frosting recipe I use is a modified version of Martha Stewart's and has that dark rich color. The tast is very rich and dark, too. I would describe it as grown up chocolate , my family loves it!

6 tbs Butter
6 tbs Vegetable Shortening
3 ½ cups Confectioners' Sugar
1 cup Cocoa Powder (dutch process is best)
2 tbs Meringue Powder
½ cup (prox) Milk, slightly warmer than room temperature
2 tsps vanilla (or other favorite flavoring

Have you tried snarkybaker's blender ganache?

6 oz unsweetened chocolate or baker's chocolate
1 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

You need a blender for this to work. Melt the chocolate, I do it in a double broiler. In the blender pulse the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved completely. Then add the melted chocolate. Run the blender until it makes a sucking sound. The mixture will be thick and it gets thicker as it cools. Don't put in fridge.

I love this. Cheaper for me to make than ganache. Although ganache is soooo good.
