Sunday Cake Day!

From the kitchens of the Food Network come a fantastic chocolate frosting that you can use for frosting a cake, filling your own sandwich cookies or just for spreading on a graham cracker for a quick afternoon chocolate treat!

We can’t say this enough—use the very best chocolate and ingredients you can afford.  The results will be well worth the expense.

Best Chocolate Frosting


3 ounces unsweetened chocolate

3 tablespoons butter

3 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 to 8 tablespoons milk


In a double boiler over hot water melt chocolate with the butter. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. In an electric mixer add chocolate mixture and confectioners’ sugar. Beat until mixture resembles chalky beads. Add the vanilla and the milk 1 tablespoon at a time until a spreadable consistency is reached. Beat until fluffy — adding more milk if necessary.

Makes enough to frost a 9-inch two-layer cake.
