Ironic that the day I'm going to rate this it comes up as recipe of the day!...Thanx Inez for another super recipe. I have made this twice, both times for a yellow cake. Second time I didn't have unsweetened chocolate, so I did the subsitution thing with 3TBS cocoa powder and 1 TBS oil for each square......Still made this frosting WONDERFUL...Chocolate lovers dream!
Just love this icing (frosting). The frosting is so creamy and rich and finger licking good. The chocolate and the butter gives this icing a nice gleam and rich a look that tempts you to eat the cake. It sure is a chocolate lovers dream, especially when paired with Inez's Eggless One Bowl Chocolate cake #16560. Congratulations Inez another winner. :-) Note: Inez, when I reviewed this recipe I forgot to rate it with a star. *duh on me* So I hope this review will override my first review and all will be right. :-) hugs Chrissy
I did a search for chocolate frosting and up popped Nana's Chocolate Frosting! I am so glad it did too, because this is the perfect chocolate frosting for any occasion. Ample frosting for a 2 layer 8" cake and plenty left over for those greedy bowl lickers. Very chocolaty, creamy and wonderfully delicious! Thanks for yet another winner, Nana (Inez's Alias)! ;)
My golly, you made me the favorite niece! :D I made this for my Aunt Lilly's birthday and everyone (uncles, aunts, cousins etc, RAVED!). I'm not quite sure if the cake got a heads up and knew to be extra moist for this special icing or what, but they said the icing and the cake were both to die for! I used skim milk and I really don't think it hurt it any. I just never have anything else. Let's see...oh, 16oz of powdered sugar is about 4 cups. My powdered sugar came in a larger bag, so that threw me off just a tad. Thank you so very much!!! I'm making more of it tomorrow for another aunt who is in from out of state.
I made this recipe twice this week, once using 4 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips to sub for the unsweetened chocolate, and the next time using 5 oz. I thought 5 oz was far better and made it taste just like store-bought. This is the best frosting recipe I have ever made!
Better than frosting in a can. Fantastic flavor, very chocolatey!
I was looking for a chocolate frosting recipe for my Mayonnaise Cake . My 9 yr old niece made the cake and we needed a frosting to put on it . I am SO happy we found this one . I had all the ingredients and it went together really fast . Creamy and Choc-o-riffic !! We are taking this cake to a wiener roast at the Moose Club tonite and I will bet money that there will be NONE left in the pan by the time the night is over !!! Thanks Inez !!!!!!!
Tasted great. Will use this recipe again.
This was really great. Everyone at my party loved it. I didn't measure exactly (my fault) and had a problem with the texture being a little grainy, so I added about a tablespoon of cream cheese and it worked perfectly. Thanks!
