This is a simple quick & easy frosting to make with any cake or cup cakes.

You make it chocolate with the simple addition of melted chocolate chips or cocoa powder. Both works great. You can even use the white vanilla chips. This recipe uses the cocoa powder.

I used this frosting recipe on my HEART BEETS OF LOVE CAKE. Beets is not a typo, the cake actually has beets in the batter. I made it for my husband for Valentine's Day.

It is & easy, this version is a milk chocolate, if you like it darker use more cocoa. Keep some made up in the freezer for a easy topping on cakes or muffins.
