I wanted a very "whipped cream" type of chocolate frosting and this was the closest I could find. I followed the recipe with some exceptions. Instead of 1/2 cup of water, I used 1/2 cup of heavy cream. (I'd bought a pint and didn't want it to go to waste, so I figured it couldn't hurt.) Then, once the beaten whipped cream had been folded into the mixture, I didn't think the frosting was fluffy enough for what I wanted. I also could still detect some grittiness from the pudding mix even though I beat it with an electric hand mixer for quite a while. So I took the remainder of my pint of whipping cream and beat that up and folded it in too. The texture came out exactly what I was looking for. It was easy to spread immediately. The texture is light and the flavor is chocolatey with just enough richness.
