frosting recipe needed

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm serving mini chocolate brownies and wanted to dress it up a bit. Originally I thought whipped cream and chocolate curlst but I'm thinking that won't hold up. So does anyone have an unusual frosting recipe they can give me. It would need to be easy as I'm limited on time.


Thank you!

Hi Swedzfish,

Perhaps our Cream Cheese Frosting or Peanut Butter Frosting might go well with those mini-chocolate brownies. You can search for them at the Domino Sugar website. If those don’t strike your fancy, I’d be happy to suggest some more!

Hi,
Thank you so much for responding. I am thinking some type of tiramisu frosting. Something a little different. I'm not sure what type of liquor to add?

I don't do many sweets and desserts, but I do have a favorite frosting recipe. If memory serves me right, it involves heating a cup of heavy cream, melting a stick of butter in it, then slowly melting in a pound of grated semisweet chocolate. I recall dark rum and instant coffee powder are involved as well. It may not be what you had in mind, though.

yep, I decided a buttercream frosting w/ Amaretto,mascarpone and heavy whipping cream. Now I need to pray that it will hold up a couple of hrs.

I make special brownies for my christmas party. I do a frosting i learned from Julia Child that is incredibly easy. I think it's equal parts of chocolate (semi sweet cooking chocolate) and butter. You melt the choc over hot water and then off the heat beat in pieces of butter until it's about the consistency of mayonnaise. (I usually use a little more choc and a little less butter, maybe 2/3 o 1/3 but it's very flexible).
If it doesn't get thick, put the double boiler over cold water, if it gets too hard before all the butter is in, put a minute over the warm water.
Spread over the brownies, you can scatter sliced almonds on top if you like.
I cut them in small diamonds. They're quite rich so you want small pieces, and diamonds are very attractive and seem very special.
EASY
