I was looking for something that was easy and didn't seem to sweet. This was excellant on chocolate cake.

I did not like this recipe, I thought it was too sweet, but some other people in my family loved it. If you like a real sweet, caramel flavor, then you'll like this.

If I could give this recipe no stars, I would. I did not care for this recipe. this was way too sweet, an awful consistency! I went against my better judgment and decided to make it even after reading the reviews. Don't do it!

THE WORST FROSTING EVER!!!!!!!!

 
Aug 02, 2007

THE WORST FROSTING EVER. To grainy, to sweet and almost NO Chocolate flavor. Does not spread well. I do not recommend this recipe to any one. Going back to my butter and cream cheese recipe.

This recipe was relatively easy to make. But you will need a candy thermometer. It was actually tasty but really much to sweet for my liking. Like candy. The kids will love it though.
