Jack Daniel's Frosting

"Try this on your favorite chocolate brownies. You can use Kahlua or creme de menthe instead of Jack Daniel's. Makes enough to frost a 9 x 13-inch pan of brownies."

    Wow! This is delicious. I used on brownies as recommended and they were to die for. I am thinking Bailey's would also be good...so many possibilities. Thanks for the recipe. Made for PRMR.

    This is excellent! I used Kahlua and made cupcakes. It was so good, nice and creamy and very rich. We were all reaching for a glass of milk with these. I will be making this again using Jack Daniels next time too. Thanks so much for this great idea. Made and Reviewed for PRMR - Thanks! :)

    GREAT frosting ! I added an extra tablespoon Jack Daniels. Used the frosting for a cake. The frosting did wonders after chillling, tried a piece before chilling too. I recommend chilling it. It has better flavor. Great variations on this. Will make again. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

    Oh my word, this is best choc frosting I have ever made & it was so easy to fix. I used it to frost Recipe #224731 by Luvin Texas & it reaches perfect frosting consistency w/chilling. As we discussed, I used brandy instead of Jack Daniels & found that flavor present, but subtle. In fact, I wonder if it might also work to use 4 tbsp of Baileys Irish Cream to replace the 3 tbsp of Half & Half + 1 tbsp Brandy. You might well get the same cream effect w/a stronger flavor of the liqueur & I can hardly wait to try that variation. Made for the *Pet Parade* event & thx for sharing this recipe w/us. *Yum* !
