Fudge Icing or Fudge Frosting - Call it What You May!

Whether you call it Fudge Icing or Fudge Frosting this is an excellent recipe if you are looking for a warm icing to pour over a cake. I like that it uses unsweetened chocolate baking bars. As a child this is something our household never had on hand. We only used cocoa. Cocoa is awesome too, but I prefer to use baking chocolate bars for many recipes because the flavor and mixing qualities are so superior.


1/2 c butter

1/2 c milk

4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate

2 t vanilla

4 c powdered sugar

In a microwave safe bowl or in a medium saucepan, bring butter and milk to a boil, immediately remove from heat and add chocolate and vanilla. Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Blend in the sugar, beating until all of the sugar is mixed and the icing is creamy. Pour the warm icing over the top of completely cooled cake. Let set up and serve! Mmmm just like Grandma makes!Print Friendly and PDF
