Good recipe very similar to my mum's who never measures ingredients, so now I can get close to her recipe for icing. I used 2lbs of icing sugar, but I wanted a really stiff icing. In the last batch of icing sugar I sifted in about two table spoons of extra cocoa. It needed that more chocolaty taste with all the icing sugar. I will keep this in my recipe book for next time. Thanks.
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!!
I am so tickled!! This recipe turned out great. I added more powdered sugar also to thicken it more as Marg said in her review. This is the greatest and I agree its is a 10 star recipe in my book!! I usually make a mess on making homemade icings but this was right on the money! Thanks so much for sharing this easy and delicious recipe. I will be making this more often in the future :)
