I thought I had found the ultimate chocolate frosting recipe when I made THIS cake, but I have to say this recipe is equal in chocolate deliciousness. Different, but definitely a million times delicious.
If you’re looking for a classic chocolate frosting give this one a try. It will remind you of one that you may have made in the past with cocoa, but kicked up to a higher level of chocolate goodness. While the frosting was intended and used for a birthday cake, I did not hesitate to reserve a bit of frosting for myself to make me some graham cracker sandwiches! If you haven’t tried it, you should!
