Chocolate Fudge Icing AKA Chocolate Gooey Deliciousness

A homemade cake deserves homemade icing and in my humble opinion a yellow cake NEEDS a gooey chocolate  fudgey icing and I found the perfect chocolate fudge icing recipe courtesy of BettyR on ChefTalk.

This is my first homemade icing so I stuck to the recipe exactly and I Made This:










1 ½ cups granulated sugar

¼ + 2 tbsp cornstarch-packed

7 tbsp cocoa powder

¾ tsp salt

1 ½ cups boiling water

6 tbsp butter

1 tbsp vanilla


BettyR’s original recipe has microwave instructions but I preferred the stove top method

  1. Combine sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, butter, and salt.
  2. Whisk in boiling water then cook over medium heat until thick & bubbly. This will happen quickly so don’t step away and start doing dishes like I did lol
  3. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla.
  4. Let cool then frost cake!

I suggest you use it to frost this yummy yellow cake 🙂
