Hi Butterflies! So it's my guys birthday and instead of buying a cake I decided to make one from scratch and that includes the icing. Here's how I made the icing...
Using the ingredients below, combine chocolate chips, evaporated milk, butter and vanilla in microwave safe bowl. Microwave on full power for 30-40 seconds. Remove and whisk until mixture is smooth (return to microwave for a few seconds if necessary). Add powdered sugar and continue whisking until smooth. SPREAD WHILE IT'S WARM for better frosting results! You may also mix frosting via stove top. To do so follow the same steps about but use the lowest heat as possible, stir continuously. Also this recipe only makes enough frosting for one 9in round or a small square (brownie) pan, if you are making a bigger or two layered cake you may double the recipe.
1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips1/4 cup canned evaporated milk (may substitute almond milk, if desired)
2 tablespoons butter (may substitute coconut, canola or vegetable oil, if desired)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
