"A delicious chocolate frosting for icing brownies and cookies! I like it especially as a topper on Texas Brownies. I like to add a dash of cinnamon to the frosting, it gives it a special flavor."

This frosting is delicious! I made a double-layer chocolate cake and then used 1.5 times the ingredients for the frosting, and I had quite a bit of frosting left over! MMMmmm... and it goes great on graham crackers too! (a great treat for your kid's lunch box in case you ahve never tried it - chocolate frosting/graham cracker sandwiches - just like mom used to make!). Five stars! (FYI: I used evaported milk so it wouldn't spoil if left out on the counter, and the frosting tastes great!)


Incredible! Why would you ever buy the canned stuff again? I didn't melt the butter, just let it come to room temperature and added 1-2 tablespoons more milk. Will definately use this as my frosting of choice from now on!


This was a really good, chocolately frosting. I needed this to fill thumbprint cookies I made earlier today. I did alter the measurments a bit. I used a 1/2 cup of milk and 3/4 cup of cocoa powder. The chocolate taste was not over powering by any means...it actually gave it sort of a fudgy texture which we really enjoyed. I have made this in the past and substituted brewed coffee for the milk. Thanks for sharing!!
