I had been hearing numerous raves about Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake and was waiting for an excuse to make it. I finally broke down yesterday and, with no good reason, made the cake anyway :) It definitely lived up to all its hype, without question. It’s the best chocolate cake I have ever had. I chose to frost it with the equally sinful “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Frosting. Really, this cake is too good for words…
“Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Frosting (Source: Hershey’s)
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or margarine
2/3 cup Hershey’s cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Melt butter. Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating on medium speed to spreading consistency. Add small additional amount of milk, if necessary (I did not need to). Stir in vanilla. Makes ~2 cups frosting.
