This milk chocolate frosting recipe is a little different from most. Where most call for cocoa powder or baking chocolate, I used regular old candy bar chocolate. It started out as an experiment but it actually turned out to be pretty dang amazing.
For Milk Chocolate Frosting you’ll need:
- 2 bars of chocolate (about 3 oz)
- 3 ½ cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon heavy cream
First you’ll want to melt the chocolate. I recommend putting the chocolate in a glass bowl over boiling water and slowly stirring, but you can also microwave it if you add a little bit of butter in and stir it about every 10-15 seconds. The boiling water method is much more mistake-proof.
Let the chocolate cool a bit but not harden. Put it in a bowl with your softened butter and begin stirring until its well incorporated and the butter forms soft peaks. Then begin adding in your powdered sugar, ½ cup at a time. If it starts to get difficult to stir, add in a tablespoon of heavy cream.
