I was going to make a cake for Halloween and instead decided to make cupcakes. I used a cake mix to make the cupcakes and I made homemade chocolate frosting for them.
I used a Price Chopper incredibly moist deep chocolate cake mix. The recipe for the frosting I got off the container of Hershey's cocoa.
"Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Frosting
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or margarine
2/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium size bowl place melted butter and stir in cocoa. Add powdered sugar and milk. I used a fork to blend. Add in the vanilla and blend some more. If you need to add more milk do so, I ended up adding another tablespoon more.
