Today we'll be making chocolate frosting. Now, I know I'm not the best cook in the world. Some of you are probably expecting me to open a tub of frosting and spread it onto a cake. Well, not today. Today, we'll be doing it from SCRATCH! Hard to believe, I know.
Here's what you'll need for this recipe:
6 squares unsweetened chocolate
2 1/4 cups of confectioners sugar
1/4 hot water
6 Tbsp butter
First, melt chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Then REMOVE from heat.
Next add the confectioners sugar, 1/4 cup at a time:
The mixture will be LUMPY!
When it gets too lumpy to stir I add the hot water, a little bit at a time.
Finally, add the egg and stir well.
All done! Doesn't that look delicious? Drool.
I love the consistency of the frosting. When it's warm you can pour it over your favorite cake.
Here's the final product.
