      Mersaydees, I am reviewing this frosting recipe, based on ingredients and flavor. My food processor broke. So I dedcided to make this on the stove top. It turned out more like ganache than frosting. I did allow the frosting to sit in the fridge for the required 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Beautiful color and intense chocolate flavor. We really enjoyed the frosting on your Devil's Food Cupcakes. Thanks for sharing this recipe, which I will make again and again.
