2 (1 ounce) squares
unsweetened baking chocolate
3 1/2 cups
this is great frosting with everyday ingredients. I substituted 6 tablespoons cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons veg. oil for the unsweetened baking chocolate. It worked great. Mine was perfectly thick.
This has excellent flavor, but as a previous reviewer wrote, it is extremely thin. It took me six cups of powdered sugar to reach spreading consistancy. The next time I make it, I will only add 2 TBSP milk to the butter and chocolate. Then I can add more if needed after beating in the sugar.
This is wonderful and fudgey. If your not looking for a more chocolate frosting this wouldnt be it. This stuff is pure devine fudge tasting, I can see how it can be used for fudge! Its delicious! My husband said the brownies were as good as the local bakery, and thats saying a lot! Thanks for the great recipe!
I followed this recipe exactly, using high quality real butter. My frosting came out seeping with the oil from the butter---it was pretty gross. I threw it away.
My mom has been making this recipie ( under a different name) for over 40 years. Everybody loves it. Sometimes I even add cream and use it as a ganash or use less milk and make a fantastic fudge.
Yikes - this one didn't turn out very good at all. Waaaaaaay too buttery for my tastes. After it was spread on brownies, I had to set paper towels on top to absorb all the extra butter that was pooling on the top. Followed the directions exactly - never had an issue making frosting before. Next time, I'll stick with "Chocolate Frosting I" on this site.
Me and my husband used this frosting on brownies and loved it! The flavor is great and I loved the texture of it. Warning though, it is rich.
We will definitely use this recipe with brownies from now on.
I tried this recipe tonight, though I reduced the amount of milk as suggested. I used 3 Tablespoons. Although the flavor was great, it was unbelievably greasy. After I spread it onto some brownies, the butter "pooled" to the top and I had to blot it off with papertowels! That aside, there were no complaints and they were gobbled up in no time. I'm not sure how to correct this, so am not sure I would make again.
