1

A professional pastry chef, I love combining simple, high-quality ingredients to make frostings that wow friends and family. And this recipe fantastic! Fudge icing is easy to create with 5 ingredients and finishes your favorite dish.

2

Made with melted chocolate. Avoid cocoa powder. Melting a chocolate baking bar with butter and cream creates a silky frosting.

3

Freezer-friendly. This frosting can be made a week ahead and refrigerated or frozen for 3 months.

4

Works with many desserts. Make sandwich cookies, top brownies and bars, and garnish cakes and cupcakes with your favorite cookies.

5

Semi-sweet chocolate. Chocolate chips have stabilizers, so I recommend a chocolate baking bar, which is blocks of chocolate. Smooth melting chocolate bars make a richer icing.

6

Butter. Increases icing richness. You can use salted or unsalted butter. Heavy cream. Makes icing creamy. Avoid low-fat milk for optimal outcomes.
