Chocolate Frosting

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by KimmieOH

Rich and Yummy -- Goes great with the Peanut Butter Squares. At times I have found the need to add extra powdered sugar.

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!
