Easy and yummy! I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate, so I did the 3 tbsp. of cocoa + 1 tbsp. of oil = 1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate method. I used marshmallow fluff and 2% milk instead. It was delicious on brownies.


This was very good and got compliments, however I don't think it should be beaten. Instead, I folded the ingredients together because I didn't want to lose any of the fluffiness. It turned out great that way. Also, I didn't add much liquid (maybe a tablespoon) because I was afraid it would be too runny, and mine turned out thick and creamy. Thanks for a frosting recipe that is something new and different. :) (**as a side-note, the reviewer who suggested that maybe 3/4 cup was a typo and that one should use 3 to 4 cups of powdered sugar is incorrect. If you use that much sugar, you will definitely get a grainy texture. I only used 1/2 cup and the texture was great).


i needed a quick frosting and it HAD to have marshmallow cream in it (so my husband said) and this recipe was perfect. I didnt have any half and half, so i used 2% milk. I made 24 chocolate cupcakes and filled them with a marshmallow cream recipe and topped them with this chocolate marshmallow frosting. They taste wonderful. They are for a halloween party. thanks for a great recipe....also, i added maybe another 1/4 cup powdered sugar to make it a little sweeter.
