Creamy Chocolate Fudge Cake and Cupcake Frosting Recipe

Today's recipe is another great vintage recipe from the late 1960's that was given to me by my great aunt. This chocolate fudge frosting is really great for cakes and cupcakes or if you are a brownie lover and like frosted brownies you can use it as a brownie frosting.

Chocolate Fudge Cake and Cupcake Frosting Recipe

4 1/2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup hot water
2 1/4 cups confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar)
4 large egg yolks
4 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt the chocolate squares over hot water in a double boiler pan. Remove pan from heat and stir in the water and confectioner's sugar. Add in the egg yolks, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add in the butter or margarine, one tablespoon at a time. Stir in the vanilla extract. Stir the mixture until it is creamy and smooth.

This frosting will cover two 9" layer cakes or 18-20 cupcakes.
