Mom’s Best Fudge Icing

One of best times I had as a child, was learning to cook with my mom. She had some of the best recipes around town.  Now that she has passed away, I have all her cook books and scraps of paper with her recipes on them. I hope you enjoy this fudge icing recipe as much as I do.

You can put this fudge icing on any kind of cake, cup cakes or brownies.

    Hi, what’s the quantity of 1 box powdered sugar?

    1. Timothy Davidson says

      I apologize for the late answer. 1 cup powdered sugar will be enough for this recipe.
      Thanks for your patience

    Linda…a box of powdered sugar? Seriously? How much is a box? How many ounces or cups? Malini asked this same question, but you have not yet replied, leaving us hanging. So here I am in the kitchen in the middle of making this frosting (I should have read the recipe first) and I get down the list and read “a box of powdered sugar.” Is it 8 ounces?
    In a recipe, nothing is ever measured by cans or boxes or jars. All I can think of is going online to my local grocery store and finding a picture of a box of powdered sugar, zoom in as close as I can to see how many ounces it is, and hope that is correct.

      On the mom’s best fudge icing when you put cocoa what do you mean what kind of cocoa I know about cocoa powder

  4. Janet says

    What is difference between cocoa and cocoa powder? I do a lot of baking and can usually figure these out but I’m a little confused on this one. Are you just adding cocoa powder at two different times? Thanks

    1. Timothy Davidson says

      We use cocoa in the first and last step. written this way cause not to be confused

  5. Sandee says

    Are cocoa and cocoa powder the same thing?

    1. Timothy Davidson says

      Yes, same

  6. Jaime says

    Is this icing good for piping versus “pouring over cake”?

  7. Michelle says

    I found I had to only use about half the milk called for but that was probably personal preference. But I am really happy with the way this turned out and how it easy it was (after the misunderstanding with the cocoa/powder) and how yummy it is! So, thank you!

  8. Dukediesel says

    The pictures are confusing because you have two different cakes with two different chocolate fudge frostings on them and one title with recipe ingredients used for both. The frostings look very different so how can the recipe be the same for both? The lower cake in the picture is the frosting I wanted but when I made it, it came out like basic chocolate frosting. Please clarify, thank you
