Baker’s new double fudge chocolate frosting

Deeper, darker and more delicious than any cocoa could ever make it because it’s made with four squares of rich, pure Baker’s Chocolate.

A new honest-to-goodness chocolate frosting. Rich and moist, velvety smooth and bursting with the aroma and unforgettable flavor of full-bodied chocolate, because it’s made with Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate. Cocoa could never make a frosting like this, because cocoa has most of its chocolate richness removed. And we should know — we make them both.

Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

You can use 5 ounces of unsweetened chocolate for a deeper dark chocolate flavor.


  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 2-1/4 cups unsifted confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 2 egg yolks (or 1 whole egg)
  • 6 tablespoons soft butter


  1. Melt chocolate, place in bowl.
  2. Add sugar, water; blend.
  3. Add yolks one at a time; beat after each.
  4. Add butter, a tablespoon at a time; beat well after each. (If too soft to spread, place bowl in cold water, stir frosting to spreading consistency.)


Note: Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.

Makes enough chocolate frosting to cover top and sides of one 9- by 13-inch cake, or two 9-inch layers.

  1. Baker’s chocolate know only comes in 4oz bars. They used to be 8 oz bars. Please adjust recipe to ounces instead of bars. I am assuming that this recipe is for 4 or 5 ounces of a Bakers chocolate. Thx
