This is a chocolate version of our favorite frosting for red velvet cake. To get it right, you really need to beat the shortenings ans sugar together till it is VERY fluffy - a stand mixer is best. And then you have to beat in the flour/milk mixture for at least 4 or 5 minutes on high seed to make the icing come together. When it's done right, it is delicious, not too sweet and very light-textured. Also, I used butter instead of margarine - makes a big flavor improvement.

Ok Ms. Ora, I didn't care at all for this frosting. Not very chocolatey and a little runny. We added about fifteen melted candy kisses to add some flavor. Sorry. I won't rate it. Maybe someone else will have a better opinion!
