Favorite Chocolate Frosting

Chocolate frosting is a favorite and a staple, I might add. Wonderful on anything– brownies, white cakes, yellow cakes, chocolate cakes, a spoon, the list goes on and on.

This recipe makes a lot, but you can halve it if you would like. Kind of like with those Choc-o-holic Chocolate Brownies? Hmm?

Frost it on anything you’d like with a knife or pipe it on your favorite cupcake! It will taste the same, all chocolate-y and smooth, I promise. Scout’s honor!
