This is the best homemade frosting I have had for sometime! It tastes even better on a homemade cake. It is really glossy and easy to spread and has a very good taste. I frost my cake with this while the frosting is slightly warm. Definitly a keeper!
I used this to frost Brookes bombshell brownies from this site. I looked Amazing but I wasn't to fond of the taste. I thought it was super sweet and not to chocolatey, I may try this recipe again...but with some adjustments to the sugar and cocoa.
This was pretty good. I used cocoa powder instead of Baker's chocolate. It thickened up almost instantly after it began to boil. I actually forgot to add the butter and vanilla at the end, and it still tasted good. I should have waited until it cool to spread it, though, because while it was warm it was too runny.
This recipe was great, I will keep this one as my favorite. It is not too sweet, spreads nice and looks great. It's the perfect choice if you don't want a real sweet icing. thumbs up!!!!
OMG, this frosting is incredible. I used it with the "Welfare Cake" and it's just amazing. The only reason I gave it fours stars instead of five is because it took about an hour to finally thicken (maybe I had the heat on too low???).
I'm not a big fan of traditional frosting unlike the rest of my family. I'm always trying to find a happy medium. This was great!! Such a nice texture and smooth, rich flavor. I will make again and again. Thank you.
If it takes long for it to thicken increase heat to medium, it thickens immediately after it starts boiling. I added the vanilla and butter from the beginning (misread the directions), and it still turned out delicious. It really has the consistency of a pudding, so you could use it for filling a cake too, not only for icing. Unlike other commenters, my husband found this to be a bit on the sweet side, so I would adjust sugar to your liking. Thanks for the recipe!
Wonderful, this really has the consistency of pudding. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and added less sugar. I didn't have any problems with the thickening, but I used medium heat instead of low because it was taking forever to boil. If you do that just make sure you stir constantly so it doesn't burn. Also... this would make excellent vegan pudding for anyone interested :)
