Fudge Frosting
Makes 2½ cups
  • ¾ cup (170 grams) unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup (65 grams) Dutch process cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup (180 grams) heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons (63 grams) light corn syrup
  • ½ teaspoon (1.5 grams) kosher salt
  • 5⅔ cups (680 grams) confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) vanilla extract
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, cocoa, cream, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Gradually whisk in confectioners’ sugar until sugar is melted and mixture is smooth and glossy, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Pour into a large glass liquid-measuring cup. Let cool until warm, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use immediately.
