    Source of Recipe

    USA Weekend

    List of Ingredients

    • 4 eggs yolk with enough milk to equal 1/2 cup
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/2 tsp instant coffee powder
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 stick butter
    • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
    • 3 cups confectioners sugar
    • 4 tsps light corn syrup


    1. Mix eggs and milk, cocoa, coffee powder, vanilla and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter in medium bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add melted chocolate and cocoa mixture; continue to beat until smooth.
    2. Add confectioners sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating slowly at first, until sugar has been incorporated into the mixture, then at medium speed until frosting is light and fluffy.
