My name is Brandon Sarkis on behalf of Expert
Village. Today I am going to show you some nice and really quick recipes and how to decorate
holiday cookies. Now I am going to show you how to make a chocolate version. We are just
going to take about half of this, about there. We are going to take our cocoa powder right
into it and slowly stir that in. The thing is that the cocoa powder is going to thicken
up a little bit so you may need a little bit more milk to make this work. We’ll see or
it may work out just fine. This is a light cocoa powder unless you like a darker shade.
Something else you can do in a pinch if you don’t like cocoa powder, you can also use
chocolate syrup. It will work as well as powder for hot cocoa or hot chocolate. Like the instant
stuff you just add hot water. That will work too. It won’t work as well as regular cocoa
powder. The chocolate syrup you have to make sure you make it a little too thick before
hand because the chocolate syrup will thin it out. So now you see is our chocolate frosting
and our vanilla icing. All the same batch. Just a couple of minutes to knock both of
those out. Then like I said if it thickens up too much, just a little bit of milk or
even a little bit of water if you don’t want to use milk. You can also make this with water.
Tasty. There you go. Just make sure you whip all the lumps out and if it is a little too
thin, you can always add some more powder sugar.
