Fudge Icing

Updated on May 20, 2021

Doing food reviews is personal to me and my tastes. I know that everyone is not going to agree with my opinions and that's okay!!

Recently, we talked about Aunt Grace's fudge and how much I loved it. Since then I have been craving my favorite cake from my childhood. My Mom's chocolate frosting was to die for but I refuse to bake a cake now since I am the only one in this house and no one else to help me eat it. When Bill was here I would make it because the two of us would polish it off in a couple of days.

Growing up in our house, birthdays were always special. Except for my Dad's Spice cake, the family favorite was chocolate devils food cake with the best fudge icing you ever tasted. My Mom always spoiled us with this treat for our special day.

I know everyone has their own special chocolate fudge recipe and today you may even just buy it in a can. I promise you the time it takes to make this icing is well worth the wait. Not only does this recipe ice a two-layer cake but if you have any left over you can drop it onto wax paper and eat it like fudge. You can use this on a sheet cake also and leave even more icing for those special fudge treats. My brother and I couldn't wait to lick the spoon and the bowl after the cake was iced.

The chocolate for this recipe can be found in the grocery store in the baking aisle. The bar looks like a large hershey bar but it is unsweetened.

Newest Tip for Melting Chocolate

In this modern age, you can use a microwavable bowl. Put in your chocolate squares (or you can use chocolate chips either semi-sweet or milk chocolate) and butter and melt on high for 30 seconds. Whisk smooth as soon as you take it out of the microwave and continue with the rest of the recipe by adding alternately your powdered sugar and milk. Beat until smooth. The taste is the same but you have eliminated the need for a double boiler and use the same bowl for the whole recipe.
