Great-grandma Laura's Chocolate Frosting

Barbara CumboBarbara Cumbo Cumbo

My husband’s grandmother, Laura Golden, made a version of this frosting for my husband and he loved it. This was Papa Dick’s favorite! He loved having a yellow, butter cake made in a jelly roll pan so that it was very thin and then having the frosting slathered over the top. Papa considered the butter cake to be the perfect ’vehicle’ for transporting the delicious, rich dark chocolate frosting. I got the recipe and made this for him for years. Using the microwave makes it a snap.
