Created for my 3 Ingredient Beginner Brownies. If you like chocolate, you will love this frosting. Easy to make, delicious to eat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.
  2. Stir in chocolate chips until melted.
  3. Add the frosting, blending until smooth.
  4. I like to put the frosting on the brownies while they are still slightly warm, then refrigerate until set.

I made this recipe exactly as written with no deviations. This was a good icing and very quick to put together. The icing spreads easily without tearing the cake and the taste is very good! I did find that the leftover cake must be refrigerated or the butter starts to separate from the icing- leaving a weeping effect.

I made a last minute cake for my kids. Needed a quick icing and this one did the trick!! It just doesn't get any easier than this, and the kids loved it!
