GREAT recipe! Really tasted like the candybar! Only suggestion is to avoid using it with cupcakes because once the second batch comes out, the frosting has cooled and isn't very spreadable. Thanks for the recipe!

This did not turn out at all. It solidified very quickly and was not spreadable. I added some milk to thin the consistency but it did not help much. I suggest taking brownies out of the oven first and then making frosting. The brownies will still be hot when frosting is done.

This icing was delicious and easy! My kids and my husband loved it. Best of all, it didn't require confectioners sugar. Thanks!

This is great - tastes just like peanut butter fudge. It doesn't however, taste anywhere like a Mr. Goodbar. I thought it would have a more chocolate taste and was disappointed that it didn't. But, still yummy.

The family & my husband's work crew really loved it. Sent some in a care package to my son in the Army. I bet his whole platoon loves it as well.

This was really good! I halved the recipe and it was plenty to ice a boxed chocolate bundt cake. I love it because these are ingredients I keep in my pantry. Didn't have any evaporated milk so I used regular and it turned out fine!

This is a really good fast and easy frosting recipe, especially if you don't have any powdered sugar. It does taste like a Mr. Goodbar, which is one of my favorites. I used it to top chocolate cupcakes with crushed peanut butter cups and it worked out perfetly. Thank you for this delicious frosting recipe that will be a keeper in my house.

Excellent! I used vanilla almond milk instead of the evaporated milk and vanilla extract and its the perfect pair for my chocolate cake!
