      Very good. I halved the recipe and had plenty left over. Used a small cookie scoop to uniformly frost cupcakes. The warm frosting spread itself beautifully. My friends thought they were from a bakery. The fudgey frosting on butter recipe cupcakes is a winner,

      Made this as a candy, & was happy to share it at several park-wide gatherings we attended over the past couple of days! A big hit, it was! I particularly enjoyed it & now definitely want to use it to frost a decadent chocolate cake sometime soon! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook Tag]
