I made this frosting (alongside some cream cheese vanilla frosting) to use on a yellow cake (Four Egg Yello Cake from thsi site) for my daughter's birthday decorated as Diego (from Go, Diego, Go). It had a very nice, buttery flavor. Much nicer than what you can buy premade, which always has that artificial additive taste. It also had a dark, rich chocolate color (which works well for brown hair!) But I had to add an additional 1 1/2 Tbsp. of milk to make it smooth and thin enough to spread on a cake. I also had to work quickly to frost as it seemed to want to dry out fairly quickly (at one point, I had to add a drop of milk and remix it to smooth it out again). I also made sure to alternately add the milk and powdered sugar to the chocolate mixture, and just mixed it in the pan (heat turned off). There was a moment I thought it wouldn't turn out when the frosting seemed to almost curdle, but I added more milk and mixed like crazy and it smoothed out. Oddly enough, it didn't easily stick to my cake like my cream cheese frosting did. But the flavor more than compensated for the higher difficulty of using it. I would use this again, but with the alterations I made.
