This is the frosting for my recipe Toll House Cake (Layer Cake or Bundt Cake - You Pick) I'm posting it seperately for everyone who needs a creamy, delicious chocolate buttercream frosting for their favorite cake.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in mini-morsels until melted.
  2. Add salt and vanilla.
  3. Gradually beat in confectioner's sugar and milk until creammy and fluffy. I beat this for a good 10 minutes. The longer you beat it, the creamier it gets.
  4. Makes enough to fill and frost 2 layers (about 2 1/4 cups of frosting).

So easy to make, so hard not to eat out of the pan! It tastes like a chocolate bar on top of a cake. So fudgy. Very impressive

This went together so quickly, so very creamy and delicious. I used a larger saucepan to have plenty of room to beat in the powdered sugar with an electric mixer. I had plenty for a 13 x 9 inch pan of brownies.
