    MelinOhio's Note:

    My aunt would make this for all the family get togethers, I could hardly wait to dig in, She always served it on a dark chocolate cake. It is better than whipped cream. Cook time is cooling time.

      This is AWESOME. It was my first time making it and it turned out awesome! :) I used lemon juice instead of vanilla extract and added a little powdered lemonade drink mix to make lemon flavored icing. It was delicious! Thanks for a great go to recipe!

      PERFECT! I halved the recipe and added a (cooled) shot of espresso to flavor it, and also added some cocoa powder - I'm not sure how much, because there was just a little left so I dumped it all in; probably about 2 T. I also added 2 T of powdered sugar at the end because it was looking a little runny. It turned out just as I hoped it would, light airy and tastes like coffee ice cream. I'm using it as a filling on a chocolate cinnamon cake and putting a chocolate glaze over the top. Yum!

      Easy to prepare and it tastes heavenly! I've made buttercream frosting using several different recipes. This is by far the best. Thank you!
