My mom has this plain chocolate frosting recipe that she got from a 1970's Nestle Choco Bake package. It is the lightest, most cocoa-ified frosting I have ever tasted, and I think I was put on to this planet to share the wealth.
What you need (for 1 cup)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 envelope (1-oz.) Nestle Choco-bake
1-1/2 measuring teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
2-1/2 measuring tablespoons milk
We figured out today though, that if you substitute the 2-1/2 measuring tablespoons of milk with this:
2 measuring tablespoons of Creme de Menthe
1/2 measuring tablespoons of almond milk
it somehow manages to taste even better!
What you do:
In small bowl, combine butter, Nestle Choco-bake and vanilla extract; mix well. Alternately blend in confectioners sugar with milk. Beat until smooth.
Gop onto anything and everything. Preferably something with even more chocolate.
