No Cook Fudge Frosting

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Anita Harris

This is a great make-ahead frosting which can be refrigerated up to 2 weeks or frozen up to 3 months. Makes enough frosting for 2-8", 2-9" or 1 - 13x9 cake. Cook time includes cooling time.

Top Review by Chef Mirielle

This is the best frosting. Very easy to make. It is exactly like the frosting used at a local bakery. This is going to be my "go to" frosting for anything chocolate.
