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.
