Mom's best icing - we couldn't wait to lick the bowl! If she didn't get the cake frosted quick enough we could eat all of it!


  1. Melt butter in pan- remove immediately and add cocoa.
  2. Mix until smooth.
  3. Add milk, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt.
  4. Can add more powdered sugar to make thicker or more milk to make thinner depending on consistency desired.

This is definitely the GREATEST chocolate icing I've ever had! 10 stars! Very easy to make and the taste if fantastic. I used about 3/4 of a 2 lb. bag but I like a stiff icing. Thanks so much for sharing this fantastic recipe!

It really is the best icing I have tried! I assumed that you meant 1/2 a 2 pound bag of powdered sugar. You must have because that was perfect! I mixed by had with a whisk and it was just fine. I can't wait to see how it tastes on the "whatever Floats Your Boat" Brownies! Thanks for posting.

I just made this icing this afternoon, for a bridal shower. It was superb! Its ONE HUNDRED times tastier than store bought icing. After melting the butter and whisking in the cocoa, I used my stand mixer to stir in the vanilla milk and powdered sugar (a little at a time). If you're looking for a chocolate frosting, look NO further! This is it!!
