When you need chocolate frosting fast, this one minute chcolate frosting is perfect. With just 5 ingredients, you can have a frosting better than the canned stuff from the grocery store.
This frosting uses chocolate chips to get that chocolate flavor instead of cocoa powder. Then you just need some canned milk, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar.
All you do is add the chocolate chips, canned milk, butter and vanilla to a microwave safe bowl. You only need to microwave it for about 30 seconds. Whisk it together, then whisk in the powdered sugar and it’s ready to go.
If you don’t spread the frosting right after you make it, it can thicken up. However, no worries, just put it in the microwave for a few seconds and mix again. It’s as good as new. I used this frosting an put it on top of the wacky cake that I shred with you yesterday.
- 1 cup semisweet or milk chocolate
- 1/4 cup canned evaporated milk
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips, evaporated milk, butter and vanilla. Microwave on full power for 30-40 seconds. Remove and whisk until the mixture is smooth (return to microwave for a few seconds if necessary).
- Add powdered sugar and continue whisking until smooth. Use immediately. If you don’t get it on what you want it on soon enough and the frosting thickens, just microwave for a few seconds and whisk again and use. Makes enough frosting for a 9 x 13 inch sized cake.
