Perfect Chocolate Frosting

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Cupcake-Princess

This is my own recipe for the best chocolate frosting. Using melted chocolate instead of cocoa powder makes this frosting creamy, smooth, and irrisistable. I like to frost cupcakes with this yummy frosting.

Oh the sweet smoothness! The frosting didn't turn out as dark as I'd expected, but it made it all the more perfect for the deep dark Recipe #403155 I used it on, in fact! Thank you for sharing!
