How do you get your chocolate icing so dark and yummy looking? Mine is always lighter than that but I want to achieve the darker look...thanks for the help!
To get that luscious dark look, use a really good quality cocoa powder. Cacao Barry is one of the best. It's rich, dark and very chocolaty.
That looks exactly like what I am looking for!
Can this be piped on cupcakes and used to decorate on cake? Sounds Delish!
Thank you - I will try Cacao Barry, I've never heard of it but can't wait to try it!
I use this recipe all the time; however; I whip it for 5 minutes (and I add 1 TBSP of Kahlua if making for adults) so delicious - and yes; you can pipe it on cakes; and it sets up really nice
Hi, I melt my butter in a pot on low, add the cocoa powder then the Skim milk...while still on low I add the powdered sugar-then the vanilla. I stir with a whisk and dip cupcakes or brownies or pour onto a cake...This actually hardens up like a ganache and is very yummy and smooth...discovered purely by accident! A perfect accident my hubby says! Give it a try!
how long does the frosting last, i only add water to mine and i was concerned that this recipe contains milk.
"Perfect Accident" sounds so good :) I wonder if it gives a shiny look as well.
The original recipe looks so good and creamy, a must-try thing.
I made this by halving the recipe for a batch of mini chocolate cupcakes I had baked. It came together very easily and had a wonderful texture. Although I did think that it was somewhat sweet when I taste tested from the bowl but when I tasted a cupcake later on I found that all the ingredients had blended together to create a very wonderful frosting. I will be bookmarking it and using often.
