Pourable Chocolate Frosting

chocfrostThis is an excellent frosting and bonus, it’s pourable. It cooks up in a jiffy and then you just pour it on a warm or cooled cake. It obviously is best on a cake that is baked in a pan and will be served from it.

It will stiffen up enough to not run after it has cooled but it’s still very soft, so I wouldn’t try it on a layer cake.



  • 1 stick Butter, Salted (8 Tablespoons)
  • 4 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder (again, I Recommend Using A Dark Cocoa Powder)
  • 8 Tablespoons Milk
  • 4 cups Confectioners Sugar (Powdered Sugar)


  1. Combine everything but the powdered sugar in a saucepan and heat until the cocoa has melted out and everything is smooth.
  2. Add the powdered sugar a cup at a time and whisk until smooth.
  3. Cool very slightly then pour over the cake, using a knife where needed to spread.

SERVES: About 1 1/2 cups

NOTES: A nice addition might be some chopped nuts on top. Put on before the frosting has totally cooled and set.
