Chocolate Icing... Memphis Junior League Cookbook
1 stick of Butter(room temperature)
4 squares of unsweetened chocolate melted and cooled
4 cups of Confectioners Sugar
1/3 cup evaporated milk
2 tsp vanilla
Beat butter til fluffy, add melted chocolate. Mix well. Add Confectioners Sugar gradually adding milk as needed. Beat until creamy. This recipe makes a generous bowl of icing for a two layer cake. ( You might need to add a little more milk than the recipe calls for...I know I did. Just add it by small amounts until the icing is creamy. And I might have used half and half instead of evaporated milk but who's telling???)
This is my go to recipe for a chocolate cake...the Cake Doctor's recipe for the layer cake makes it taste like a cake from scratch. I use this recipe for the layer cake of my Caramel cake as well. And this chocolate icing is so tasty and easy to spread!! Enjoy!
