Baker's New Double Fudge Chocolate Frosting

Baker's New Double Fudge Chocolate Frosting

"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." This advertisement originally appeared in the November 1966 edition of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine.
A vintage advertisement recipe for Baker's New Double Fudge Chocolate Frosting


4 to 5 squares Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate
2 1/4 cups unsifted confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup hot water
2 egg yolks or 1 egg
6 tablespoons soft butter


Melt chocolate, place in a bowl. Add sugar, water; blend. Add yolks one at a time; beat after each. 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.)

Makes enough to cover the top and sides of one 9x13 cake or two 9-inch layers.
