Go 'head and hate on me, haters. I really don't care.
For today I revel in the joy that is HOMEMADE FUDGY FROSTING!
One of my brothers (I'm not naming names, but it's probably Dan) used to beg Mom to make him a bowl of fudgy frosting for his birthday. Not cake with frosting. Not cookies with frosting. Just a bowl of the hard stuff.
It's very simple. It's just basic buttercream frosting with a generous sprinkle of cocoa powder. I've been known to throw some Cadbury Drinking Chocolate in there too on occasion. And maybe a bit of vanilla extract. If you choose to make it German Chocolate Frosting you can throw in some coconut extract instead.
But in any case, OM NOM NOM.
Once again I have put the cart before the horse and made frosting before making baked goods. I guess this means I should whip up a batch of World Domination Sugar Cookies and frost them. In a pinch I could use this awesomeness to frost graham crackers. I'm willing to bet you could frost liverwurst with this stuff and it'd still be edible.
I suppose if you are within driving distance of my humble abode, this might be construed as a "come & get it" post. (Just give me an hour or two, OK? And no liverwurst will be frosted today, I promise.)
