Sorry to say I was somewhat disappointed with this frosting. I have never cooked frosting before but I had to transfer to a bowl and mix it with electric mixer then had to add more icing sugar. Too runny....I did double the recipe so may have gone wrong there. Unfortunately, not what I was looking for and had to salvage it .... don't like wasting stuff.
This was a very quick and easy recipe to prepare, but the end result was disappointing. After it cooled I was left with a dull, grainy frosting. I also doubled the recipe and it still didn't fully frost my 9" two layer cake. I've never "cooked" frosting before, so perhaps I erred in some way. Sorry, but for me this recipe just didn't work.
Very easy to put together and completely delicious. I sifted the confectioners sugar before adding it to the butter and cocoa mixture. I used it to frost Chocolate Spritz Cookies.
great frosting, easy to control the consistency and yummy. i like this one better than the others that are similar in ingredients b/c it blooms the cocoa wich gives it a better flavor. thanks for a keeper.
This taste fab and is SUPER easy! I am an extreme couponer and find myself needing to clean cake mixes from the pantry. I had a randome coconut supreme mix I wasn't sure what to do. I whipped this up using coconut oil like someone said but kept 1 T of butter just for flavor. I then used almond extract. It made a boring ole cake mix into a wonderful dessert. I think may toast some coconut and almonds next time to top it off!
I give this a 4 due to my changes. I halved the recipe but I don't see how it would affect the taste/texture but as is, it wasn't a frosting at all. It was more like a glaze as someone stated. I had to add a bit more powdered sugar and about another 1 or 2 TB cocoa powder because it tasted more like butter than choco frosting. I ended up with a delicious, thick frosting. I'll be sure to note that this one needs some tweaking if you half it.
Excellent recipe! I used half dairy free margarine, 1/2 coconut oil and cashew milk to make it dairy free and it was perfect with an extra tablespoon of cashew milk.! Thanks for sharing!
Very good. It does cover a 9X13 cake. Next time I'll do a double recipe and freeze half.
This is very good. I did a little modification to it though. I used about 2 Tablespoons of Butter Flavored Crisco and 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil. The coconut oil (the kind I get is in a jar on the oil isle and is a semi-soft form) gives it the ply-ability to spread without getting too stiff. My husband (the guinea pig) prefers it to any other 'icing'. I think I am going to try it without the cocoa for white frosting.
This frosting is awesome! It's really easy to make and tastes good too! It came out a bit thin when I finished, but stirring in more powdered sugar or cocoa fixes that.
