This is the only Chocolate Frosting Recipe i use!! It's quick and easy. I find that i use approx. 2- 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar. I like my frosting a little thicker. Thanks for posting!!!!

Hard a rough time with getting this to a 'creamy' stage. It is still gritty, but tastes good. Nice dark color too. I wouldn't make it again because of the grittiness, but it isn't a loss, as it really does taste good.
