Recipe: The Most Amazing Chocolate Frosting You'll Ever Have

So a few years back I started making homemade chocolate frosting.  I have to be honest, I'm not a big frosting person at all, but this is one of the only two I will eat (& I'll only eat it on yellow cake!).  I love sweets, but I'm very picky about my cake!  I got this recipe off of the Hershey Cocoa box, & it's the best.  Literally everyone I've ever made it for goes crazy.

1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Combine using a mixer with paddle attachment.
-Stir cocoa into melted butter.
-Alternately add powdered sugar & milk, beating on medium speed to spreading consistency.
-If needed add more milk, I usually add a few extra splashes.
-Stir in vanilla.
Makes about 2 cups frosting.

I have to warn you: if you make this you will get addicted!

Do you ever make homemade frosting?

  1. I have never made my own frosting, but this sounds SO good!

  2. I always make my own frosting! I tastes SO much better than store bought, which sometimes gives me a headache. I've never made chocolate though, so this will be a good recipe to try around the holidays :)

  3. I've never made my own frosting, but sounds pretty easy! I'll definitely try it!

  4. I just found your blog looking for the rubber band bracelets. (My first grader came home talking about them.) Anyway, I just wanted to say that the Hershey's chocolate frosting recipe is my absolute favorite too!
