No-Cook Fudge Frosting
Ingredients
  • 2  pounds  powdered sugar (about 8 cups)
  • 1  cup  unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1  cup  butter, softened
  • 2/3  cup  boiling water
  • 2  teaspoons  vanilla
  •  Boiling water
Directions

1. In a large mixing bowl combine powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Add butter, boiling water, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat for 1 minute on medium speed. If necessary, cool for 20 minutes or until mixture reaches spreading consistency. Or, if frosting is too thick, add additional boiling water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until mixture reaches spreading consistency. This frosts tops and sides of two 8- or 9-inch cake layers. (Halve the recipe to frost a 13x9x2-inch cake.)

2. Makes about 4-1/2 cups.
