This chocolate fudge icing is a buttercream frosting that makes some of the richest and most creamy icing you’ve ever tasted. It’s surprisingly simple and pairs well with cakes and cookies alike! Frost your brownies with it, fill your cupcakes with it, go nuts!

This recipe achieves a fudgier consistency than regular chocolate frosting by combining high-quality dark chocolate and cocoa powder.
