  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
  • 4 Tbsp. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Mix all ingredients, except vanilla. bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir twice. Boil 1 minute; set aside. Do not stir! Cool to lukewarm. Beat like fudge. If it becomes to thick, put a little milk in to thin down. This is great for cake, brownies, cookies, or whatever you happen to want to use it on!

Does anyone know how I can make my own cake icing ('frosting' for Americans) that is the same as the Sara Lee Chocolate Fudge one sold in containers? I love this stuff, but it's so expensive here in Australia!

This recipe was likened to Sara Lee's Fudge Frosting
Sounds YUMMY :)

"A good fudgy frosting for cake or cupcakes."
Original recipe yield: 1 cake or 2 dozen cupcakes


1/2 cup butter
3 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
1 pound confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup milk


Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave, or in the top of a double boiler. In a large bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla and 1/2 cup of the milk. Blend in the melted chocolate mixture. Add remaining milk, a little at a time, until desired consistency is achieved.
Let stand until spreadable (frosting will thicken as it cools).

Hi, I have a REAL FUDGE ICING (frosting) it is the very best, WITHOUT using icing sugar, powdered sugar or confectioners sugar, this recipe you can pour over the cake, it is WONDERFUL

"The Very Best Chocolate Fudge Frosing"

1 1/2 C's white sugar
1/2 Cup REAL Butter
1/2 Cup WHOLE milk
Boil hard for 1 minute

Remove from heat; ADD
12 -14 ounces Chocolate chips, mix thoroughly till all chips are melted & consistency is SMOOTH.

Pour over cake while warm

NOTE: Do NOT put vanilla extract in this recipe, because it will turn the icing to real FUDGE, (hard).


If you want to thin this recipe a bit use more milk or 1/2 & 1/2 (cream)

You can use cream instead of milk in this recipe, if you want.

It was really horrible! It turned out watery and messy. What's Icing without SUGAR? My cake was great but the frosting ruined it!
