Choco Fudge Frosting

There are frostings and there are frostings, but this is the first time that I came upon a frosting recipe that can be used as a frosting or as a sandwich spread. Yes folks, you read it right, my son isn’t fond of eating sweets or anything sweet but when he got a taste of this frosting, he requested that I keep it all in the refrigerator so he can use it as a sandwich filling. The reason? It has a dark chocolate sweetness thus it isn’t cloyingly sweet. A note of warning though — this really takes time to cook (it took me 2 hours to reach the thickness that I wanted) but it really is worth the wait. Thanks Kate of My Baking Momma for sharing this and for allowing me to post it.

Ingredients:

1 cup cocoa powder

2 cups sugar

3 cups evaporated filled milk

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup softened butter

 

Procedure:

– Place all the ingredients in a double broiler and stir until well mixed.

– Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

– Stir more often when the mixture begins to thicken.

– Once you have achieved the thickness you desire, allow the icing to cool down before frosting the cake.
