I normally hate frosting but this is the best frosting I have ever tasted and the only frosting recipe I will use from now on.

Good stuff...rich, but not heavy and not too sweet. I frosted a from-a-mix cake for DS's birthday. I used Dutch Process cocoa. Received compliments from son's friends. It tended to "melt" at room temp, so best refrigerate.

Turned out great! I used Dunkin Donuts sweet and creamy creamer instead of half and half and it turned out awesome!

Tasty. The icing was too loose for piping. Maybe 1/4 cup milk instead?

Made this delicious icing for a yellow cake. I did not have the half and half not the whipping cream on hand. I used Pet milk. This turned out to be a wonderful cake.

My 10 yr old son and I made this for a 9x13 yellow cake we made from scratch and it was perfect. We whipped up the recipe for a medium chocolate frosting in the kitchenaid mixer and used heavy cream because that's what we had on hand. We definitely had to add a little more cream while mixing until we got the consistency we wanted. It was very sweet but oh so delicious. I've got a chocolate buzz!

By FAR the best chocolate frosting I've ever had. I can't remember the last time I licked the beaters and scraped the bowl!

Used the 2/3 cup cocoa and frosted a 2 layer cake with plenty left over. Used a little more whipping cream than called for to get the consistency I wanted and used 1/4 cup salted butter and 1/4 cup unsalted because that is what I had on hand. Love the flavor. It is perfect.

I made this recently, but instead of butter I used solid coconut oil. The icing turned out wonderful! The flavor with the coconut oil substituted for butter came out amazing & would be the perfect icing for a German Chocolate cake. My husband loved it.
