Chocolate Frosting is easy peasy and it makes your mouth water, it’s so good!
Chocolate Frosting for My Favorite Chocolate Cake
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop. This is the Chocolate Frosting I often make to top My Favorite Chocolate Cake. So rich and creamy. This frosting is also terrific on Gluten Free Chocolate Cake (which is super yummy!). It’s made with cocoa.
I could eat this frosting with a spoon, and I’m always happy when no one else is here so I don’t have to share it. The grandkids love to lick the bowl when they are here, so I do have to share it then. When my daughter Erin was little, she loved frosting on Apples. Any way to deliver frosting to your mouth is good for me.
It’s super easy to make. No cooking involved. But you do need an electric mixer.
But why not get a Kitchenaide?
