This recipe wasnt sweet at all despite the 1 1/2 cups sugar, which didnt dissolve and instead left it grainy and distasteful. If i used it, it would have ruined my sister's birthday cake! It still didnt work after hours of cooking and fixing, it just was a disaster! maybe it should use powdered sugar instead.

Yummy! I love this frosting. I use it on the Dark Chocolate Cake recipe (#2496). Works wonderfully.

Great icing and very easy to make. I have never made icing before, and this was very easy to follow and cake out beautifully. I used evaporate milk (2%) and tasted great. And I usually do not like chocolate icing.
