It’s your lucky day! It’s a great day to visit my blog. I have a Almond Cocoa Frosting Recipe from Scratch that you NEED.
Almond Cocoa Frosting Recipe from Scratch, you say? It is most delicious and a must have in every baker’s kitchen. This is my all-time fave recipe for chocolate frosting. Whether I use it on a chocolate cake, or even a Lemon Truffle Chocolate Cake-it is THE best!
Making recipes, especially dessert, from from scratch are so delicious. There’s something about the quality that puts store bought to shame.
Oh believe me, I buy store bought desserts and main dishes, when I am in a pinch. But I can never resist a “from scratch” recipe. Can you?
So, here we go…My Almond Cocoa Frosting Recipe from Scratch:
Almond Cocoa Frosting Recipe:
3 cups confectioner sugar
1/3 cup real butter (softened)
3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons whole milk or cream (may need a little more)
1 tsp pure almond extract
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
Using the whisk attachment on your mixer, blend confectioner sugar, cocoa, and butter.
Gradually add milk, almond extract, and vanilla. Mix until light and creamy.
I usually whip my Almond Cocoa Frosting Recipe from Scratch anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes. This will give you a light and airy frosting.
Your frosting looks good. Makes me wish I could still eat sugar whenever I wanted.
I completely understand your pain Marty :)
Make it a great day!
