Easy Chocolate Frosting

What’s my favorite chocolate frosting?

This one’s a family classic and is a wonderful companion to your favorite chocolate or mocha cake recipe. This doesn’t have the consistency of buttercream or even whipped cream. Think peanut butter only more chocolatey. It is very pliable and firm and can be smoothened with a spatula, drizzled with toppings, or simply roughened with a fork. It is also best stored in a cool room and not in a fridge since it tends to harden in a fridge.

The recipe is very simple but it’s labor-intensive, especially for your legs and your patience. Fortunately, the results are worth it. (Recipe under the cut.)

Easy Chocolate Frosting

1 can (14 oz) of condensed milk
1 stick (100 g) of unsalted butter
4 tablespoons of cocoa powder

Cook all ingredients over very low heat. Stir often to smoothen the texture. Do this for 25-30 minutes or until the frosting is spreadable. Let sit for 10 minutes and spread on a cooled cake (make sure the cake is completely cool and not the least bit warm because it will absorb some of the frosting).
