Cook four minutes and it is a great frosting. Cook five minutes and it is Fudge. Great old fashioned cooked Fudge frosting. The kind your Grandmother probably made.

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,
