I have made this several times, several different ways, and gotten rave reviews. The original recipe as-is is very sweet and rich. It is time consuming to sift the sugar/cocoa mixture, but well worth it if you have the time. Also, be sure to fully whip the butter before adding the sugar/cocoa mixture, and then mix until smooth in order to get a creamy frosting that isn't 'grainy'. I have also made this recipe with about half the butter and without sifting the sugar/cocoa, and with 2% milk rather than the evaporated milk. It was still very good and I don't think the taste suffered at all. With either recipe, you may have to add a little more of the milk (in small increments) to reach the right consistency. Next time I am going to try using coffee in place of milk for a mocha flavor. This is a recipe you can do a lot with and you can't go wrong!
