I always bake pastry goods for my family, and they absolutely love the frosting I put on the cupcakes. My go-to frosting recipe is this chocolate frosting from Recipes by Carina on Youtube. I’m telling you, it’s absolutely delicious and decadent. Since I discovered this recipe, I have never looked back to other frostings as this really hits home for me. This only needs five ingredients and doesn’t even need an electric mixer; a good ol’ hand whisk is enough. It’s perfect for cakes, cupcakes, brownies, cookies, or even slices. I used to make complicated frostings but not anymore since I discovered this recipe. So if you love pastries and looking for a good frosting recipe, you should try this out, you won’t regret it. Watch the video below to learn the step by step instructions. All thanks to Recipes by Carina for this wonderful recipe.
To a bowl, add 2 tbsp softened butter, 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 to 2 tbsp hot water.
Whisk these all together. (If you think the consistency is too thick, you can add more hot water as you wish. You can also add more of the other ingredients to your taste.)
