Momou's Famous Chocolate Icing

The day I discovered this particular recipe I was sitting on my bedroom floor as a new bride spending another afternoon sorting through Momou's priceless recipe collection. I came across a recipe written in her handwriting in a blue marker on a piece of cardboard. Such a different type of recipe compared to all of the other yellowed newspaper and magazine recipes. I took a closer look and all of a sudden tears started filling up my eyes. This was it. "THE" recipe. Momou's famous chocolate icing.

For each and every birthday Momou made us a delicious yellow two layer cake covered in this amazing icing. So many special memories are attached to this chocolate concontion. And I warn you, this icing is so delicious that you WILL want to lick the entire bowl!

Last Monday we celebrated my darling hubby's birthday so of course I carried on with tradition. A yellow cake topped with Momou's famous chocolate icing. It was a hit with the birthday boy and all of the others who had a slice.

Momou's Famous Chocolate Icing

1 1 LB box of confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
1 stick butter
3/4 cup cocoa
4 tablespoons milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine cocoa and butter with mixer on low speed for 2-3 minutes. Mix in milk and powdered sugar at low speed, alternating between each. You may add more milk until you receive the spreading consistency that you desire. Voila! Easy as can be!

Oh and another warning...you will never want to go back to store brought icing that comes in a "tub". You just mark my words! Why would you when you can make this amazing icing from scratch in just a matter of minutes?
