Delicious chocolate has been a goody from the time that mankind has known one! Drawing its roots from ancient Mayan as well as Aztec civilizations where it was actually dished up at sacred ceremonies, chocolate was believed to have magical aphrodisiac properties.
This 'drink of the Gods and Devil like', chocolate has never failed to create an instantaneous sinful craving within chocolate enthusiasts all around the world. Even though chocolate martini must go down the to-do list right away, let's begin with a fast old-fashioned formula for amazing homemade chocolate frosting to sex up whatever you decide to choose.
Chocolate frosting is not just awfully attractive to look at, but almost as good to taste. The abundant, creamy, taste which it lends to anything that it can be combined with makes for a mouth-watering delight. With a formula for a chocolate frosting you are ready to make a goody out of perhaps even the blandest of food. Pre-designed chocolate frosting can be easily found in the market place while at the same time you could easily whip up some in your house, in no time at all.
Simply follow these simple instructions:
14 oz – semi-sweet chocolate
2 cups – unsalted butter / margarine
2.5 tbsp – milk
5 cups – confectioner's sugar
2 tsp – vanilla extract
First suggestion; dissolve the chocolate inside a microwave or over the grill. If your microwave is not accessible, take a look at this simple classic substitute.
Half-fill a metal dish with water and warm it. Take an additional glass bowl with a somewhat wider rim and put in the chocolate in this bowl. Now hold it above the metallic bowl so the steam rising underneath melts the chocolate.
You can quicken this up by crushing the chocolate with a ladle or a large spoon. If you try out the second method, try and avoid letting too much steam come in contact with the chocolate. As soon as the chocolate has completely melted, allow it to cool down for a while.
Now beat the butter till it gets a smooth consistency. Slowly pour in the chocolate whilst continuously stirring at a medium pace. Continue to keep stirring till it combines with the butter and then step by step add in the milk, confectioner's sugar and vanilla flavor.
Beat everything until it all comes together in a fluid consistent batter. Keep adding milk, till the creamy mixture attains the consistency you want it to, and also is easy to spread. If you are a chocolate chip lover, you could generously sprinkle chocolate chips to the mix and you have your own homemade chocolate frosting, isn`t that great?
Our delicious rich homemade chocolate frosting is done! For best results, pour it directly on the food of choice and allow it to dry. Keep in mind that this chocolate frosting will dry quickly. So in case you're looking for a nice crisp chocolate shell around a cake / cupcake, this will do the job nicely.
For storing, let it cool down until it's at room temperature. Then fill inside any kind of hermetic container and store away in a fridge. Should the chocolate frosting at any time start to dry out or if it becomes thick, basically include some more milk and beat once again right up until it arrives at the previous consistency / thickness. As simple as that.
Be cautious though as it's easy to add more than necessary. You need almost no milk here. It'll be best to add a small amount at first and then add more if necessary. Our home-made chocolate frosting is ready to add more quality on your favorite piece of food![ad_2]
