Fudgy Chocolate Frosting.
Here's the recipe I used for frosting the cupcakes I made for the our work for the 48 Hour Film Project. It's a tasty frosting, but very gooey and sticky. Consider yourself warned.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- dash of salt
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all of the above ingredients over low heat until combined. Then heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, and then cool for 30 minutes.
