"This frosting comes from my Mom. You can use it on made-from-scratch brownies, or give boxed brownies a special touch. Very rich and VERY good!"

This is a thick, glossy, fudge-like frosting, perfect, I agree, for brownies, though I used it to frost My Mom's Chocolate Cake, also from this site. I prepared this exactly as written and found...

I have used this before but I do not remember it being this grainy. I think 1 & a 1/2 cups of sugar is asking a lot for just one cup of chocolate chips. It's really sweet, sets nicely (especia...

I submitted this recipe and I cannot stress enough how you need to make sure it is boiling properly and for the time specified. Also, the frosting won't separate from the brownie if you put it ...

Holy cow! Fudge on top of brownies. How much better could it get? This frosting is like a light, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth fudge. The word I would use to describe it is "confection." I mis...

Appropriate recipe re-naming? Chocolate Brownie CRAAAAAAACK. Awesome. Really awesome. And not only is this recipe awesome, it's really easy. Not that you could make a great brownie better but th...

This was a great old-fashioned frosting! It worked fine to use confectioner's sugar (what I had on hand) I also used 1/3c chocolate chips, 1/3c peanut butter chips & 1/3c toffee pieces in place...

This is the *perfect* frosting for brownies! Thick, fudgey, and wonderful. The husband and kids raved about it. It does set up thick like fudge which is what I was looking for. I followed th...

A nice rich frosting, I used it to frost eclairs. I made 1.5 times the recipe for a 9x13. The chocolate chips didn't entirely melt but that gave it a nice slight crunch.

I must admit that I used this recipe to frost two 8" layers of golden cake instead of brownies. It was a simple and delicious recipe! I followed it as written to rave reviews~ thanks! =)

I'm not a religious gal - but I said a little prayer after eating this miracle of a frosting. I bet it could make anything taste fabulous... Make sure to work fast though - pour and frost quickl...
