Creamy frosting that doesn't need to be refrigerated, so it's perfect for potluck dinners. Makes enough to frost a bundt cake or the top of a 13x9 inch cake--double it if you want to do a 2 layer cake.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift sugar and cocoa powder together into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Place the marshmallow creme, butter, and milk in heavy saucepan over medium-low heat.
  3. Stir until melted, 2-3 minutes and remove from heat.
  4. Pour the sugar-cocoa mixture over the marshmallow mixture and add the vanilla.
  5. Stir until the frosting is smooth and satiny.

I used a cup of mini marshmallows because I didn't have the marshmallow cream. It turned out really more like a ganache but it was DELICIOUS! I definately will make this recipe again. I just dipped my cupcakes in and swirled- so easy! Got lots of raves from my BBQ.

GREAT Taste. Very rich. Quick & Easy to make. I heated it in the microwave for 30 seconds on and off approx. 3 times. I added 1/2 cup of milk by mistake and it became more like a sauce than a frosting. I waited till I was cutting and serving, then poured it over each piece. Makes great sauce for ice cream too!

Fudge like frosting, except it will melt! I made some last night and today the frosting has all melted off. Very good tasting but not very durable
