I’m still looking for the ultimate dessert to enter into a contest this year. I came across this recipe for Coca-Cola frosting and there’s a recipe for Coca-Cola cake. Right not I’m concerned with the frosting portion. I’ve been looking for a good frosting recipe for a couple of years now. My frosting recipes are all stock recipes only because I’ve screwed up so many pounds of butter and sugar in the past. Who knew a drop of water can ruin things? I hope this is the answer to my quest if not, I’ll just add it to my arsenal.
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup Coca-Cola
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Remove from heat; whisk in sugar and vanilla.
Notes: Makes about 2 1/4 cups.
