    I just use a standard butter cream frosting and add chocolate. 16 oz. confectioners sugar; 1 stick butter; milk to get to proper consistency. I usually mix by hand with a fork. Doesn't take that long. For chocolate, add 2 squares of melted bakers chocolate - I usually use semi-sweet. This makes ALOT of frosting. But it's really, really, yummy.

    I use the recipe on the container of Hershey's Cocoa, natural unsweetened. It's called "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Frosting.
    1 stick (1/2 c) butter or margarine 3 c powdered sugar 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    2/3 c Hershey's Cocoa 1/3 c milk
    Melt butter. Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating on med. speed to spreading consistency. Add more milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla. Makes about 2 cups.

    This is very good. I just use a cake mix for the cake and top with this delicious frosting. Taste like homemade!
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    The Hershey's recipe works for me..also you could google chocolate frosting and pick from a boat load of recipes. Have you looked at Just A Pinch recipe site? Those recipes are well tested..

    I use this recipe for the most part but then add a couple tablespoons of cream cheese to cut down on the sweetness.

    I just saw a commercial for a new series of frosting made by Cool Whip. I wonder if you need to refrigerate the cake after frosting?

    Yes you do have to refrigerate after...BUT it is soooo tasty. I hate frostings and normally cut it all off, until this cool whip kind..
