"This is an old recipe I have for Mocha Icing. I hope you like it. The recipe makes enough for one 8 inch layer cake." — Carol

unsweetened cocoa powder
strong, hot, brewed coffee
Delicious! Reminded me a bit of Terimasu! I did, however, make a few alterations!
1) I used esspresso instead of coffee (added amazing flavor... however, almost too much flavor)
2) I mixed the initial ingrediants in the blender for a bit, before adding the confectioners suger a bit at a time
3) I served with a dark chocolate cake, wich, although delicious, proved to be to much.
THIS WAS DELICIOUS! I definate keeper!
This recipe was ok, the flavor was good, but it was not what I would call "icing". It was kind of thin, closer to a glaze than icing, I had to add more powdered sugar to get a better spreading consistency.
good flavor but as written doesnt work, i had to add almost double the amount of sugar to get a spreading consistency tried a second batch with about 1/2 the amount of coffee, and didnt melt the butter, and it worked much better
This icing is DELICIOUS and especially good on brownies. Make sure the coffee is strong and hot.
YUMMY. This icing has a great coffee flavour and was perfect to use on brownies. I did find the icing to be a little thin initially, but it simply requires mixing until you reach the consistency you like. Either that, or let it sit on the counter for a bit, it will thicken up.
Great recipe! Nice consistency as well as flavor. I was able to ice a round layer cake with this, would definitely recommend this one, do not pass it by! :) Thanks for posting this :)
This icing is ORGASMIC!
I used those little coffee shots in place of the brewed coffee and just warmed it to boiling in the microwave. I didn't change anything else.
This complimented the Jumpin' Java Cookies perfectly. Really, really yum.
This is an excellent and easy recipe. I used it as a glaze on my husband's birthday cake. It was a hit and a definite keeper. My only recommendation is to let it cool slightly so that it can thicken before pouring over a cake. I found that it soaked into the cake at first but if I had let it cool it would have been the perfect consistency.
