Really good choc frosting

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!!! Looking for a really good and sweet chocolate frosting. I have tried the frosting on the hershey's box and it's a little bitter for my tastes. I'm looking for something closer to canned icing in taste. I'm making a marble cake for my birthday tomorrow... icon_biggrin.gif Any ideas???

I'm a big fan of the Chocolate Syrup frosting in the recipe section.

I don't think you will be disappointed. It's very smooth and creamy. I thought it would be too sweet, but it has cocoa in it too, which cuts the sweetness. I've used it to decorate with as well, made a nice basketweave with it. It always gets rave reviews.

Oh yes! I made that a couple of weeks ago, the Chocolate Syruo Frosting that is, and it was VERY yummy. My DH really wants a fudgy icing so next time I am going to replace the syrup with a fudge ice cream topping. icon_smile.gif

You will not be dissapointed. icon_smile.gif

I made this frosting about half hour ago and it's pretty good, but it still has that bitter taste to it. I believe it's the cocoa I'm using. Does anybody know about different types of cocoa?

i made Chocolate Syrup Frosting for the first time a couple weeks ago. at first i thought it was a little bitter too. after it sat a while, it tasted better. very chocolatey, very rich. every time i had some, i wanted a cold glass of milk. icon_smile.gif

what type of cocoa have you been using?

I like Ghiardelli or any cocoa from Penzey's.

Also had good luck with Saco Premium Cocoa, this is a cheaper brand at the grocery store but seems to taste pretty good.

I haven't used Hershey's cocoa in years so I can't compare directly.

I have a great chocolate frosting recipe!! It goes as follows:
1 8oz cream cheese
1/2 cup salted butter
2 cups confectioners sugar
7 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 cup or less of milk

You mix the first 4 ingredients together and at the end add the milk. Depending on the consistency, is how much milk you add. Hope you like it!!

I saw a posting on CC today about using regular drinking cocoa in place of some of the baking cocoa. A CC member's husband was experimenting when they ran out of baking cocoa and it apparently turned out pretty good.

I would probably mix a combination of baking and regular cocoa myself when I try this and experiment a little bit.
