How to make Chocolate Cake Frosting

      Chocolate frosting is a classic and very delicious cake frosting. It is a child’s favorite and is very easy to make. Here are three recipes you can try out for yourself with simple ingredients and tools you can find around your kitchen.

What You Need:

1 cup of Sugar

6 tbsp. of butter or margarine

1/2 Cup of powdered cocoa

1 Cup of powdered sugar

1/3 Cup of whole milk

What To Do:

                  First, prepare your electric mixer. In a bowl, beat the butter at medium speed until fluffy. Add the cocoa powder and sugar, alternately adding the milk. Beat all the ingredients together until is light and spread-able enough for the cake.

      Add the vanilla to the mix and blend well. Then finally add the powdered sugar, and mix well until it forms a soft peak

Here is another recipe with a few similarities with the first one., but the small differences make for different flavors.

What You Need:

5-6 tablespoons of milk

1 stick softened butter

3 cups of sifted powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2/3 cup baking cocoa

Electric Mixer

Mixing Bowls

What To Do:

First off, beat one cup of the powdered sugar, two tablespoons of the milk, baking cocoa, butter, and vanilla in a bowl until light and creamy. Mix at low speed as to avoid over mixing that can result to the frosting being too stiff.

            Afterwards, gradually mix in what is left of the sugar and milk until the frosting is smooth. Add to your favorite cake and enjoy!

Here is a final recipe called soft chocolate frosting:

What You Need:

100 grams of plain chocolate

40 grams unsalted butter, diced
2 tablespoons of clear water

75 grams of sifted icing sugar

What To Do:

            Set a bowl over hot water, place the chocolate in the bowl, and wait for it to melt. When it has completely melted, pour in the icing sugar and butter. Stir the mixture until the butter has thoroughly melted. Stop when mixture is light and smooth.

Remove the bowl from heat; add the water, one tablespoon at a time. Beat until light and fluffy.

Those are just few of the chocolate frosting recipes available. Hope you enjoy making them and find one that is your favorite among the three.
