I've never made cooked frosting before, and I use a gas stove. So, I had my doubts the whole time I was making it. Being cooked on a gas stove, the frosting got really thick as soon as it began to boil. So, I went ahead and turned off the heat within less than a minute. When I was stirring in the oil and vanilla, the mixture was very thick, and it didn't seem like the oil was going to mix in. I was worried I'd cooked it too much. But once I actually started frosting my cake with it, I realized it was just fine. And it kind of tastes like the inside of a Lindor truffle. I really like this recipe and the fact that it doesn't require powdered sugar, which I don't usually have. So, it will probably be my go-to chocolate frosting recipe from now on. Thank you!
