I made a chocolate marble Bundt cake and needed a special icing. I have several but nothing seemed to fit until this one. It is simple and tasty and yes it has calories.

prep time 10 Min
cook time 10 Min
method Stove Top

Ingredients For simple chocolate icing

  • 1 stick
  • 4 Tbsp
    cocoa powder
  • 1 lb
    powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp
    vanilla flavoring
  • 1/4 c
  • 1 c
    chopped nuts (optional)

How To Make simple chocolate icing

  • 1
    Melt Butter & Cocoa in Saucepan Remove from Heat & add remaining ingredients Mix and spread on hot or cold cake. (My cake was cold)
  • 2
    NOTE: I did not use an entire1 pound of powdered sugar as I wanted my icing to run a little. I think the difference in taste is the heating of butter & cocoa together. I have another recipe where you just mix everything together and spread on the cake. It is good but not near as good as this one.
