My Soft Chocolate Icing

My Soft Chocolate Icing is an icing that you cook. This frosting isn’t as sugary sweet as a typical buttercream variety, but utterly delectable.

Course: BAKING, ICING
Keyword: COOKED CHOCOLATE ICING, SOFT CHOCOLATE ICING
Ingredients
  • 12 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa
  • 4 tablespoons of canola oil or margarine not spread
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 2 tablespoons margarine not spread
  • 1-1/2  teaspoons of vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Mix the cornstarch with the water to form a thick paste.  Cook this with the milk, sugar, and cocoa until it thickens nicely so it will spread. 

    Take this off the heat and then add the oil and stir in the margarine to melt through before adding the vanilla. 

    Cool and spread on your cake. 

    You will be able to frost a layer cake or a big sheet cake. 

    ENJOY!
