Coffee Frosting

This delicious recipe for coffee flavored frosting is from my brother’s wife. She used to make it in high school all the time and let me tell you, IT IS TASTY!

1 tsp instant coffee

1 tbsp warm water

1/2 stick of butter (softened)

1 cup Crisco

2 lb powdered sugar

1/2 c milk

Mix the instant coffee in the warm water to dissolve. Combine that with butter and Crisco. Add powdered sugar and milk. As with most homemade frosting add a little more or less milk to get the right consistency.

*The cake is Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake recipe found on the back of the cocoa box.
