This ONE Minute Easy Chocolate Frosting recipe is likely the quickest frosting you’ve ever made!
It comes together so fast and sets like a dream making this a go-to quick frosting recipe. It’s perfect for topping cakes, brownies and more!
Life is busy you guys! But, I am a firm believer that we should not sacrifice amazing things, like dessert because of that! Instead of opting for something prepackaged, this frosting recipe is perfect for adding something sweet to any baked goods treat in just about one minute flat.
I almost always have a big jar of homemade brownie mix on hand and when I whip them up, this is my go to topping! In fact, I’ve made this recipe a million times and used it to top everything from homemade chocolate poke cake to zucchini brownies.
This frosting sets very quickly, and when I say it really comes together in a flash, I’m not joking… ONE minute!! I use semi-sweet chocolate in this recipe, if you prefer a darker fudgy chocolate frosting, feel free to use dark chocolate instead!
While this frosting is incredibly easy to make, please make sure that you the have cake/brownies completely cooled and ready to go before pouring it onto your cake/brownies! If adding toppings like sprinkles/m&ms they must be added immediately or they will not adhere to the frosting. You can really dress this up with anything and everything including nuts, candies, and sprinkles.
Another great perk of this easy chocolate frosting is that the process of spreading couldn’t be easier! Simply tilt pan to “spread” around immediately after pouring.
