READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by SilentCricket

Delicious frosting for my "Fudge Cake" or any chocolate cake recipe! Very decadent! (Cook time is after mixture comes to rolling boil)

This did not turn into frosting at all.I went by the recipe exactly.It just turned into a pale blob of sugary slop.All those ingredients ended up in the garbage.I was skeptical about making an icing without icing sugar,I didn't have any.I should have just went and bought some and made my usual recipe.
