I think this recipe is a quick easy way to make icing. I used No Name Dessert Topping Mix and I didn't add the extra couple tbsps. of milk. My icing is quite thick with a 400g bag of icing sugar from Dollarama. I've dipped a finger in here and there to test it out and will be adding some cocoa to turn it into chocolate. I think it will be great on my Valentine's Day cupcakes :) Yum!
