Hershey's Chocolate Frosting

The folks at Hershey's know their stuff! Hands down, they have the best chocolate cake recipe in the world. So you would expect them to have the best chocolate frosting, for their cake.

To a large mixing bowl, mix the melted butter, cocoa and vanilla.

Beat in the powdered sugar, one cup at a time. 

Stir in the milk, alternating with the powdered sugar. You may not use all the milk. Add a couple teaspoons at a time. 

You will have a smooth, spreadable frosting.

Sometimes, I make my frosting the day before I frost the cake. I just store in an airtight container, and keep on the counter. You can make your frosting weeks ahead of time, but if you choose to do that, you will need to keep the frosting refrigerated. 

If frosting a double layer cake, with a simple design. One batch of frosting should be enough.

If you choose to do piping, then you will need a double batch of frosting.


1/2 Cup butter, melted
2/3 Cup Hershey's cocoa powder
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
3 Cups powdered sugar
1/3 Cup milk or heavy cream

In a large mixing bowl, stir butter, cocoa, and vanilla extract; to combine. Beat in powdered sugar, one cup at a time, alternating with the milk. Beat to a smooth spreading consistency. Store in an airtight container. 

For a simply frosted cake: single recipe
For a piped cake: double recipe
