Yummy! I tried 2 versions of this recipe as a blindfold taste test for my family: 1. Nutella in place of hot fudge and, 2. Trader Joes Organic Midnight Moo Choc Flavored Syrup in place of hot fudge. Hands down, #2 (chocolate syrup) won. My husband is really fussy about his frosting, preferring it to taste like his moms. My kids like anything sweet, but not sickly sweet. The Nutella didn't quite have a big enough 'kick' of hazelnut, so it was almost a waste of Nutella. The chocolate syrup gave the cocoa more of a deep chocolate flavor. Next time I will try it with a "real" hot fudge topping (I just didn't have any in the house, and the TJ's stuff seemed "healthier", LOL)
