Chocolate One Minute Icing

Recipe by  

"This may be the icing that you are looking for. It is very chocolaty and has a soft set to it. Try using a butter-flavored shortening. It makes the recipe double rich. My mother always used it on Devil's Food cake."

This recipe was perfect! I was a little hesitant since the other reviews said it didn't thicken, however, I was delightfully surprised when it did. I beat it with the mixer for approx 5 mins & it turned out delicious & beautiful! It isn't super, sickening, sweet & it makes the perfect amount of icing for a 9x13 sheet cake. Thanks IBLONG2JCH - this will be a recipe I use frequently :-)

My Husband LOVED it! I used as an icing on Beer Cake 1 (on this site, substituted chocolate pudding for vanilla) He said it was the BEST icing he had ever had.I also added a few andes mints and melted them in for just a slightly minty flavor. will definatly use this recipe again.

i love this recipe for the fact it isn't sicking sweet. While it didn't thicken as recipe says next time I will either try letting it cool first or adding a teaspoon of cornstarch to recipe with other ingredients to bring to boil. Also for a Bundt cake I think half a recipe would be sufficent for a great glaze.

this was too thick, and I didnt even beat it after the boiling and stirring for 1 minute. But, very fudgey, and delicious, worth trying again!

Best tasting icing I have ever had but it did not thicken up well at all,even after mixing for a very long time.
