Chocolate Fudge Frosting | This rich and creamy frosting is everything you would want in a chocolate frosting. So much so you’ll be tempted to lick the frosting off the cupcake! This wonderful fudge frosting has a whole jar of hot fudge topping! Right there that should tell you how delicious it is! Create three different cupcakes with one frosting! Once you have a good frosting recipe the combinations are endless like….vanilla, chocolate; chocolate, chocolate or one of my favorites….strawberry chocolate!
I’m a frosting girl….always have been. So for me, having a delicious pile of frosting on top of a cupcake is all that matters! As long as the frosting is homemade you can skimp on the cupcake and use a cake mix! There’s no denying that the canned frosting can’t even come close to homemade.
Frostings that are made with shortening can be stored at room temperature in an air tight container on the counter up to 2 weeks. Frostings with butter and milk should be stored in the refrigerator with an air tight lid up to 2 weeks or freezer up to 3 months.
