I loved how the icing required no cooking, and it had a wondeful fluffy texture. I didn't feel it had the strongest chocolate flavor, however, and tasted too "sugary". I melted two squares of unsweetened chocolate and whipped it in - the flavor improved greatly and the texture was not compromised. I think next time I'll leave the cocoa powder completely out and just use unsweetened squares. Thanks for sharing.

I picked this recipe because I tried to make some chocolate chip cookies from a box, which was a big mistake because they came out very bland, and because they were so bad I decided to make bars out of them instead of cookies. So I was looking for a very chocolatey frosting specifically for cookie-bars. When I followed the recipe exactly as written, I loved the texture, but barely tasted any chocolate at all. It didn't even look chocolatey-- just very light brown. After adding *several* squares of baking chocolate, it's just okay. It's better than no frosting at all, but not really what I had in mind.

I used this frosting for cupcakes. I added 2 additional tbl of milk to get the right consistency. Frosting is not too sweet and just right. I will never purchase store bought too (like a previous rater said). Thanks for the receipt.

This icing went great with sugar cookies, I left out the cocoa powder and added an extra tsp. of vanilla. Also about 2 tablespoons more milk to get the right consistency.

This is just fantastic! I am here in Norway and often get a craving for good old buttercream frosting. I used it for a devils food cake and I thought it not only tasted delicious but looked really nice too. Thanks for sharing!

Perfect! I needed a basic vanilla frosting recipe and couldn't find one with good reviews. So I took this one and ommitted the cocoa then added one extra teaspoon of vanilla as suggested by another reviewer. It was excellent!
