    This was completely liquid when I made it - and I followed the instructions exactly. I ended up adding whipped cream, more butter, more powdered sugar, and some corn starch to make it usable - not a fan of this recipe.

    Really awful recipe which wound up ruining a perfectly good sheet cake. Everyone who tried it agreed and ultimately we scraped off the frosting and created a different one. The cocoa's too strong and the sugar ratio's overpowering. Maybe melted chocolate vs. cocoa would become subtler and not so in-your-face?

    This is so yummy! I needed a quick easy icing and this one is perfect! I did read some reviews and also only added 2 cups powdered sugar and also added a 1/2 tsp of Instant espresso to the milk and it made the icing so rich! Absolutely love the recipe, gonna be one I add to the book.

    So delicious and decadent! I used 8 Tablespoons butter instead of 6 and half & half instead of milk.
