We are generally not frosting fans, but birthday cakes require some and since I had all the ingredients on hand, I decided to try this one. We were all very impressed! It was easy to make, easy to spread, and tasted great. With the sweetened condensed milk being the only source of sugar, it was not too sweet like a lot of frostings are. Thanks for posting this. It will be my standard frosting recipe from now on.
- 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate squares
- 1 (14 ounce) can condensed milk
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
