Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Frosting

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Greeny4444

This frosting is so delicious, and great for piping on cupcakes or spreading on a cake. It is directly from my Hershey's cookbook, and the same one is currently also on their website. I thought I'd post it here, because sometimes the website ones change.

Used this with Hershey's perfectly chocolate chocolate cake for my son's birthday. Wonderful flavor, but I had to make a half batch more to get the 9 inch layer cake covered. I also forgot to add the vanilla--a complete oversight--but it was still very tasty without it!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Melt butter. Stir in cocoa.
  2. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency.
  3. Add a small amount of additional milk, if needed.
  4. Stir in vanilla.
  5. Tip: If the frosting is too thin to spread or pipe, you can put it in the refrigerator to thicken for a little bit, take it out, and then stir so it becomes creamy again.
