Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter. Add in cocoa, salt and boiling water, stirring until smooth.
  2. Add powdered sugar and beat until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency. If frosting seems too thick, add water. If it seems too thin, add powdered sugar.
  3. Spread on cooled cookies, such as Frosted Chocolate Walnut Goodies.

This is a very smooth and easy to spread icing. I chose this recipe because there was no milk in the house, and I had just baked a Crazy Cake(another recipe I found on this site). They went together very well. I'll be making this one again!

This wasn't at all what I was looking for-- it was a thick chocolate mess almost like ganache but not as smooth or sweet. I had to add twice as much sugar, a tablespoon of milk and a teaspoon of vanilla to make it usable. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I'm sure there are other people who are looking for a very unsweet, straight chocolate icing. I just made a bad recipe choice based on the simple ingredient list and directions. (I was looking for "vanilla-chocolate powdered sugar frosting", which I HIGHLY recommend) I MIGHT use this one SPARINGLY (spread thinly) either between cookie sandwiches or on top of them but never on a cake.

This frosting was very yummy!!! The taste deserves a five but overall it earns a four. The frosting was very pretty and glossy but it took a while to get it to the right consistency. It took way more sugar than called for to make it perfect. I also added just a little bit of vanilla flavoring. Very yummy with chocolate cupcakes. I will never buy frosting from the store again. Thanks for sharing.
