Have you ever heard of making frosting with chocolate syrup? Well me neither! I thought that stuff was only good for making a cool glass of chocolate milk. Well surprise surprise, it makes for a delicious chocolate frosting! Probably one of the best chocolate icings I’ve tasted in a long time.
And use it to top a chocolate cake with a marshmallow middle and you’ve got a real slice of heaven on a plate. But be warned your sweet tooth will be screaming after one small piece. A little goes a very long way, even for hubs who can normally suck down sugar like it’s water!
I was a bit disappointed by the marshmallow filling though. Maybe my expectations were a bit high but I thought it would be more creamy and have more of a marshmallow taste. Don’t get me wrong it’s still a delicious icing. I guess maybe I expected something more like the filling you find in a hostess cupcake. But then again, that would make for a very messy cake! 😮
