FANTASTIC DOUBLE FUDGE FROSTING
Fantastic Double Fudge Frosting
- 1-1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 5 squares unsweetened chocolate
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Put 1 1/4 C of sugar and 1 C of heavy cream in a pan and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring it every now and then so it doesn’t boil all over hell and back.
Meanwhile chop 5 squares of unsweetened chocolate to toss in the pan once you’ve removed it from the heat.
Stir until the chocolate has completely dissolved.
Whittle in a stick of butter and then when that’s melted, follow it up with 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
Resist the urge to lick the spoon at this point because those tongue blisters would take a month to heal.
Napalm is napalm, no matter how sweet it might taste.
Put the pan in the refrigerator and go take a cold shower.
When the icing is cold, beat the hell out of it with an electric mixer or a wooden spoon.
Now you can ice that cake, if you bothered to make a cake.
