For a chocolate lover, you can't get much better. Really moist and rich frosting. Got this from a local paper, now everyone wants it.

I received this recipe from my aunt many years ago and have made it often. It is one of DH's favorites. The frosting tastes like fudge and I love the almond flavoring. I would describe this more as a cake though.
