Stir in the baking mix and chocolate chips (optional) and spoon batter into individual muffin liners or a prepared baking pan.

Combine ingredients using a stand or hand mixer on low until cocoa powder is incorporated. Then mix on high for 1-2 minutes, or until frosting is smooth.

Frost chilled cake or cupcakes and serve immediately, or keep chilled in the fridge or freezer.​
