This is a phenomenal recipe that I created based on a hot fudge recipe. The hot fudge is thickened and then heavy cream is incorporated into it as it cools. The result is the most decadent chocolate fudge frosting you can imagine. If you've ever had chocolate ganache before, the consistency if very similar. Please try it out!


Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Frosting


Ingredients

1 cup heavy cream + about 1/2 cup for adding later
1 1/2 cups sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup Dutch-processed cooca (Hershey's is fine but the taste will be slightly more bitter)
6 Tbs unsalted butter

Directions

In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup cream and butter. Stir over med-low heat until mixture is melted and almost boiling. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Reduce heat to low and add salt and coca powder, stirring until smooth. Use a whisk to break up any clumps of cocoa. Increase heat to med-low and cook 5-10 minutes, stirring constantly and scraping bottom of pan, until mixture is thick and is the consistency of glue. (It's important to continually stir at this point to ensure that the sauce doesn't scortch. If it looks like it's scortching, remove from the pan briefly, stir, and place back on heat). At this point the sauce should be very thick and sticky. You want to get it as thick as possible without burning it.

When sauce has been thickened, remove from heat and add 2 Tbs heavy cream. Stir for 2-3 minutes. Continue to add heavy cream 1 Tbs at a time, stirring each time for 2-3 minutes, until sauce has a spreadable consistency. It should incorporate 6-10 Tbs of heavy cream. If sauce is too runny, stir in pan until thickened again.

Pour sauce into a bowl and allow it to sit until fully cooled, 1 - 2 hours. The cooled mixture will be completely set and have the consistency of soft fudge.

Enjoy!

Thomas, that sounds wonderful.  Do you think evaporated milk could be substituted for the heavy cream?  I always have the milk onhand but unless I buy cream for a specific recipe I don't have it.

My Mom occasionally made a Chocolate Fudge Frosting when I was growing up. I don't have the recipe, but I do remember she had to watch it cook very carefully. Sometimes it would overcook and become the consistency of regular fudge candy...which we 6 kids got to share. lol

Thanks for sharing your recipe, Thomas. I'll be trying it, probably on my Chocolate Surprise Cake. And BTW, welcome to the VBB blog! Hope you share more fun stuff!

Half n half should work as a substitute for the heavy cream. Milk may also work but I can't guarantee it.

My grandmother used to make a yellow cake (scratch, no recipe) and cooked fudge frosting.  We loved to clean out the pan after she made the frosting. She used no recipe for that either.  Sometimes it would be almost like fudge so we'd peel it off the cake and eat it separately.
