About

A double whammy of cocoa and chocolate makes this frosting especially fudgey. It can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Let the chilled frosting stand at room temperature until spreadable. Makes about 1 cup; enough to fill and frost the top of an 8-inch double-layer cake, the top of one 9 x 13-inch sheet cake, or 12 cupcakes
