I hadn't made chocolate frosting before (only vanilla buttercream), but I was tired of using the Betty Crocker's tub version because it always tastes waxy and too sweet with a bitter undertaste. This looked like the simplest yet high-rated frosting recipe around, and it's very true to what it says. I followed the recipe exactly, apart from an extra 2 TBSP of butter. The result was enough to thickly frost a 9" x 13" cake with a little left over, and tasty enough I keep eating the leftover frosting. It's very good, not the perfect 'fudgy' chocolate, but a richer chocolate. I'm still looking for a chocolate fudge type recipe, but this will do great on Devil's Food cakes for the time being.
