Fudgy Chocolate Frosting
Makes: Makes about 3½ cups
  • ½ cup (1stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into pieces
  • 4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar, divided (plus extra as needed)
  • 5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup milk (plus extra as needed)
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream (plus extra as needed)
  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup sugar gradually, beating until beginning to combine, about 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl once or twice. Add remaining sugar, melted chocolate, vanilla, milk and cream and beat on high speed until completely smooth and creamy. Frosting is now ready to use. Best if used immediately; may be refrigerated in an airtight container for 4 days. (Bring to room temperature and re-beat after storing).
