Prepare your cake mix as follows, only add milk instead of water and
 add a huge dollop of mayonnaise~taste like homemade!

My Homemade Chocolate Frosting Recipe~

  • 1/2 cup margarine (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 or 5 tablespoons milk
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • Good dash salt

Soften or melt the margarine first.  Melt it in the microwave. Add the cocoa, vanilla, and 4 tablespoons milk. Using electric beaters or a whisk, beat these ingredients together until they are good and smooth. Add the powdered sugar, about a cup at a time, and continue beating the frosting. After you have added all four cups of powdered sugar, you may need a little more milk to give the frosting spreading consistency. If you think you need more milk, add it a teaspoon at a time. If too much milk is added, you will end up with runny frosting. Fix this by adding more unsweetened cocoa, or more powdered sugar, or both. If desired you may replace the milk with strong coffee and end up with a very tasty grown up mocha flavor. SO GOOD!
