This is the best recipe I have ever found for chocolate frosting! I have also used molasses in place of the honey, but some don't like the flavor as much. This is the frosting I always use on my gingerbread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In small bowl, beat butter, cocoa, corn syrup and vanilla.
  2. Add powdered sugar and milk.
  3. Beat to spreading consistency.

I doubled this frosting and it was enough to cover a double layer 9in round cake. However the family didnt think it was anything special. It was just ok. Thanks for posting. Made this for a Bargain Basement Tag.
