Quick Chocolate Frosting


Great on the Chocolate Walnut Cookies!

3 cups


  • 5 ⅓ tablespoons butter, softened

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 3 tablespoons boiling water

  • 1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar


  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter. Add in cocoa, salt and boiling water, stirring until smooth.

  2. Add powdered sugar and beat until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency. If frosting seems too thick, add water. If it seems too thin, add powdered sugar.

  3. Spread on cooled cookies, such as Frosted Chocolate Walnut Goodies.
