This has to be one of the most perfect chocolate frostings I have ever had the pleasure to lick from the beaters and the bowl. I made this last night to frost a chocolate which I took into the office today. Just the taste I got from licking the bowl was enough to let me know I had found a winner here. Very simple to make, and it goes on smoothly. It's important to let the frosting cook a bit before shmearing it on the cake, especially if your cake has developed a bit of a hill in the middle, as the warmer frosting will tend to give in to gravity and head down towards the edges of the cake. Thanks for a wonderful recipes, I'm going to be making this quite often.
