Kahlua Chocolate Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kitchen Witch Steph

This rich and creamy frosting topping a devil's food cake is one of my birthday requirements! Years ago, my mom altered a basic frosting recipe by replacing half of the milk with Kahlua. It really enhances the chocolate flavor. This must be refrigerated but it won't take up room in the fridge for long!

This is a great tasting addition to any chocolate cake! I use it for the frosting on my chocolate Guiness cake and it really brings the whole thing together.
