Rich and Yummy -- Goes great with the Peanut Butter Squares. At times I have found the need to add extra powdered sugar.
- 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 tablespoons boiling water
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons cocoa
- 1 -1 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar
- Mix margarine, vanilla and boiling water add cocoa and powdered sugar mix until creamy and smooth.
- Spread on cooled peanut butter squares.
I loved it. I was looking for a frosting recipe without anything perishable in it, like milk, and this worked on yellow cupcakes beautifully. I sifted the powdered sugar and it took more than the listed amount, but I just went with it til it was the right consistency. I doubled the recipe for 24 heavily-frosted cupcakes and added 1 square of unsweetened baking chocolate as the other reviewer suggested. De-lish!
I picked this frosting because I didn't have any milk or cream in the house and needed to make chocolate frosting. It was easy to make and OK, but wasn't amazed by it. I frosted 12 cupcakes pretty heavily with a single patch. For half the cupcakes I added Starbucks Via instant coffee and that made the frosting great.
What a great (and quick) recipe! I omitted the boiling water and only used 1 cup of powdered sugar with nearly 2 tablespoons of cocoa. It was nice and think and covered our 8 inch round banana cake perfectly. Will definitely use again.
