HELP! NEED CHOCOLATE FROSTING RECIPE!

I am making a cake for a co-worker's birthday for Wednesday the 24th. She wants chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I have the devil's food cake recipe. Does anyone have a yummy chocolate frosting recipe?

Thanks!

Hi Michele,
I really like the Hershey's chocolate frosting recipe, but I'm not sure if that's what you are looking for. I like milk chocolate frosting, though. Martha Stewart has a recipe for frosting for a devil's food cake, but it looks a little hard to me (and made with a lot of oil!!). You may want to check it out, though. Here's the links:

(if you can't get that link to work, try "googling" Mrs. Milman's chocolate frosting)

Hope one of those helps!! Good luck - I sure wish I'd worked with someone like you when I was in the working world!! :)

This is the recipe I usually use for Chocolate frosting. I hope it helps!

Ingredients:

2 cups butter (no substitutes), softened
9 cups confectioners' sugar
2 1/2 cups baking cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar, cocoa and vanilla. Add enough milk until frosting reaches spreading consistency.

I forgot to add that if you are only making a 9" cake, you can half the recipe. Good luck!

I agree on the Hershey's cocoa frosting. That's what I always make, but it turns out a little too dark if you add as much cocoa as the recipe calls for. I usually add a few Tablespoons instead of 2/3 of a cup!
