I imagine this is great IN a recipe. As for frosting I'm going to have to say, no. I added some vanilla, some more splenda, and yes, even a little butter; but the powered milk flavor kept persisting. I realize this recipe isn't titled "sugar free frosting" which is why I'm not rating, just commenting. Thanks.

I used this in a Peanut Butter Pie that I made and it turned out great. I used sweet and low for my sugar substitute just because it was cheaper. It only had a slight trace of aftertaste. I might try Splenda next time. Thanks Carrie for give use this great recipe.

This is NOT Sugar Free. Non-fat dry milk powder has 35 grams of sugar per serving! Read your nutritional labels, they're there for a reason.

This worked out well sprinkled on sugar-free brownies. It isn't as sweet as regular powdered sugar, but it makes a nice replacement for diabetics. Made for Diabetic Cooking Tag Game.

i just finished making this & it was great. I really dislike that awfully sweet frosting that's made the regular way. This is a great alternative, i thought it tasted great also. thanks so much for posting patrick

I used this recipe of yours to make a lower fat/sugar version of Mississippi Mud Pie. It was great, no one knew the difference. Thanks so much for posting this, it's been well used in my house!

This recipe is really good. It keeps a long time too in a sealed container. I did use Splenda and it came out great for my diabetic kolacky's.

This was the worst substance I've ever tried in my life! I made it to use in a batch of frosting and when I tasted it, I almost gagged. It's starchy and bitter, not sweet at all. Maybe it works in certain types of recipes, but never try it in frosting. YUCK!
