Chocolate Fudge Frosting Recipe
Completely Simple

...but totally delicious!

It’s way easy to start with something good and make it better. We do that all the time - bet you do too.

Retail stores sell toppings, icings and frosting, all ready-made - and they’re not that bad. Commercial bakeries buy similar products, all made up, but in 5 gallon pails or 55 gallon drums.

Party Recipes and Ideas is not a gourmet, boutique cookery website. We're caterers trying to help folks do their own catering for large numbers of people. The idea is how to do something well, quickly, which winds up looking and tasting great. And - all the while - doing lots of it, along with the rest of your menu. So recipes like this one keep things simple and get it done - really well!

So let’s take a simple product you get at your market, and make it simply wonderful!

Read about Party Food Quantities to plan for more or less.


3/4 cup I can’t Believe it’s Not Butter
1/3 cup cocoa
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup hot fudge topping, like Hershey’s
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Use your electric mixer and have at it.

For something totally decadent, substitute a pre-made frosting for the I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter. No Spoons Allowed!

Go to the next flavor level by adding 2 tablespoons of your choice of flavored extracts, like almond, rum, orange, etc.

For the expresso thing, microwave the milk with some instant coffee. Make sure the crystals are dissolved.

Booze it up by substituting rum, chocolate liquor, etc. for the milk. When we do this, we add a little powdered milk to keep it super creamy tasting.
