Chocolate Frosting

This recipe is much like chocolate icing, except that it’s, well, frosting. It’s easier to spread, stays in place, is thicker and also has a richer taste. I’ve always wanted a quick, easy recipe for frosting, and if you want it too, here it is.


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp plain chocolate (you can also use milk chocolate), finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil / butter
  • 1 tbsp milk


  • In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar and oil.
  • Add the cocoa powder and chocolate.
  • Stir in the milk. Make sure everything is thoroughly combined.
  • Place the saucepan on medium to low heat. When the mixture begins to bubble, start stirring until the frosting is sufficiently thick. This takes about 30-60 seconds.
  • Take the pan off heat. Let the frosting cool (it thickens slightly during cooling).
  • If you’re in a hurry, you can spread the frosting while warm, but it’s best for it to be cool when you spread it, as should the cake.
