2 Minute Chocolate Frosting

2 Minute Chocolate Frosting

Frosting makes everything better. This quick chocolate frosting is perfect for cake, brownies, cookies or eating with a spoon.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup regular or evaporated milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Combine chocolate chips, milk, butter and vanilla in microwave-proof bowl. Microwave on full power for 30-40 seconds.
  2. Remove and whisk. If chocolate chips are frozen like mine, microwave again for 30 seconds. Whisk again until chocolate chips melt and mixture is smooth.
  3. Add powdered sugar by sifting to ensure smoothest frosting and continue to whisk until smooth.
  4. Spread the frosting while still warm. This will help the frosting spread easier and keep you from damaging the cake or brownies.

    Ridiculously delicious! Poured the icing on and served in a bowl. No one could get enough! So easy to make after a long day of running around and all ingredients were already in my kitchen. Thanks for making our evening

    I found your recipe doing a Google search. I have made this several times now and we LOVE it! I like that you can add whatever you want to the batter as well…last time we did white chocolate chips, the time before that, cut up peanut butter cups. So easy and so good!
