Another recipe from my grandma. I still remember making this with her as a little girl. Rich and creamy!
- Put first three ingredients in a sauce pan.
- Bring to a boil, while stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and add chips.
- With a wire whip beat until creamy and cooled.
- Add chopped pecans if desired.
This is by far the best chocolate frosting I've ever made! So simple and sooo good! ETA: I just wanted to come back and say that this makes the perfect amount of frosting for 2 13x9 pans of brownies. I used half and put the rest into the fridge. When my brownies came out of the oven I microwaved the frosting for 15 seconds, stirred and it was the perfect consistency to pour/spread over the hot brownies. It sets up nicely once it cools.
i decided to use peanut butter chips instead of chocolate and it came out superb!!
I've never made frosting before and had no trouble at all whipping this up very quickly. It's really sweet which is fine by me! I frosted a banana cake with it (delish!). I am going to use this for brownies in the future because it has that fudgy texture which would go great on brownies.
