All About

Chocolate Frostings

We’ve created a chocolate frosting that's lick-the-spoon good in every way imaginable. Using a variety of milk, semisweet, and bittersweet chocolates, these recipes range from elegant ganache to birthday-party buttercream. Some are even paired with classic partners such as coffee, mint, and coconut. Whether slathered between layers or swirled onto cupcakes, chocolate frosting always hits the spot.

recipe

This recipe features three-layer devil's food cake, and a super rich chocolate frosting courtesy of crafts and editorial director Hannah Milman's mother. It's the best birthday cake a chocolate lover could have. The frosting is made with heavy cream, grocery-store chocolate morsels (be sure to forgo fancy ones - the recipe won't work as well), and corn syrup. It requires constant stirring for about thirty minutes, but the result is such chocolaty goodness, you'll know every swipe of the spoon was worth it.
