      Excellent! Dense and fudgy. I only added a tad more milk to make it more spreadable.

      Great and easy old-fashioned tasting chcocolate icing. I love the simplicity of the few ingredients. I used this to frost a Boston Creme Pie Cake and there were more raves for the icing than the cake itself. Plus, anything endorsed by Anne-with-an-"e" is alright by me. :) Thank you!
