Chocolate Chips

It’s me, Lily! I love to share simple sweet treats with you. They are easy to make and taste yummy!

I love a good frosted treat, and there are SO many yummy frostings to choose from! This one is extra yum, it’s made with chocolate chips.

Chocolate Chip Frosting is dellllllllllicious! I’m not going to lie I ate all of the frosting and not all of the cupcake, but that’s because the frosting was so good. Chocolate Chips are so good. There were big ones and small ones in our recipe, and no matter which one I had, it was YUMMY.

Variations + Storing Tips

f you are worried about the frosting being grainy you can choose to skip adding the brown sugar and just use powdered sugar instead. If need be you can add a few tablespoons of molasses for that flavor.

Serve chocolate chip frosting on cakes, cupcakes, or spread on some graham crackers.

Variations/Additions:

  • Chocolate chocolate chip frosting (add about a ½ cup of cocoa powder to the frosting)
  • Butterscotch chips
  • Dark chocolate chips
  • Mint chocolate chips

 

STORE the frosting in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge. It may need to soften at room temperature for a little bit before you try to spread it.

FREEZE frosting in a freezer safe bag/container and freezer it for up to 3 months before letting it thaw in the fridge overnight.

This can be made a day or two ahead of time!

  1. Lily, I hope you are having an awesome time at Disney!! I like eating frosting. I like eating only the frosting without the cake 🙂

  2. Lily, your cupcakes look delicious. I can see why you ate all the frosting and left some of the cupcake behind! I hope you have a wonderful vacation with your family at Walt Disney World this week. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    I made the chocolate chip frosting and it is amazing. Truly. I added a smidge of heavy cream (1 TBSP) and it made it a little easier to spread. HOLY MOLY GREAT RECIPE!!! THank you
