Ultimate Fudgy Chocolate Frosting

There are a few things that can solidify your reputation as a good baker. Having a solid pie crust recipe. Knowing your way around a vanilla cupcake. And a perfect chocolate frosting recipe.

Well, I can help you cross one of those off your list right now. (You’re welcome!) This recipe takes a bit of finesse to get the right consistency, but the result is sweet, smooth, and fudgy.

Note before you start: The frosting will thicken as it cools. Always add less milk than you think you need. You can always add more!

Different consistencies you may need:

Layer cake: A layer cake will need a thicker frosting that will keep it’s shape better.

Sheet cake: It doesn’t need to be as thick, but should still hold it’s shape pretty well.

Cupcakes: This is up to you! If you’re planning on piping, it’ll need to be similar to the thickness for a layer cake. If you’re spreading it on top of your cupcakes, it can be a bit thinner.

Recipe Type: Frosting, Chocolate, Dessert
Ingredients
  • ½ cup vegan butter
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 pound of confectioner's sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½-3/4 cup Forager cashew milk
Instructions
  1. Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each.
  2. In a large bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla and ½ cup of the milk.
  3. Whisk in the melted chocolate mixture.
  4. Add remaining milk, a little at a time, until desired consistency is achieved.
  5. Allow it to cool in your refrigerator in 10-minute increments, stirring in between each. (It took me about 3 rounds of cooling)
  6. If the frosting ends up too hard after it cools, microwave the mixture for 30-45 seconds to soften, and stir in a couple tbsp of cashew milk at a time until it is spreadable and can hold it's shape.
