    This recipe makes more than enough for a two-layer cake or 2 dozen (24) cupcakes. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!

    Storing your chocolate frosting

    You can place your fluffy fudge frosting into the fridge to enjoy it later. Cover it well, because it takes on smells easily. The coldness makes it becoming thick as fudge. You can also cut it like fudge and enjoy a few bites.


    For using, take the frosting out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature. This takes a few hours. To make it all fluffy again, whip it with a tablespoon of milk and it becomes perfect again.

    Since the frosting has milk in it, keep the frosting for up to a week in the fridge or freeze it.

    If you love marshmallow creme, here’s a few recipes that use it for you to try.

    1. I love the looks of the consistency of this frosting. I’ m sure the marshmallow creme has a lot to do with that. Great tip about freezing the frosting too. I would have never thought to do that. Looks fantastic!
