Dixie Crystals Insight
- We used dark cocoa powder to get the rich color of the chocolate frosting in the photo. If you use a lighter colored cocoa powder, you may need to increase the amount to obtain this dark color. Adding more cocoa powder can make the frosting thick; but you can add a bit more heavy whipping cream to balance it out and obtain the consistency you want.
