Yum, yum, and yum some more. Coffee and chocolate, how can you go wrong. We only used about 14 ozs of confectioners sugar instead of 16 ozs. We put it over a chocolate cake with just a touch of coffee it in as well. We substituted the expresso powder for the three tablespoons of strong coffee. This icing is definitely a keeper.

I made the recipe as stated above but used about 14 oz of powdered sugar. It was sooo ridiculously sweet. I added an additional half cup of cocoa powder just to cut the sickly sweetness and overwhelming flavor of powdered sugar.

OH MY GOSH!!!! This is wonderful. I cut back on the sugar also & upped the cocoa by a tablespoon. This has got to be the best chocolate frosting EVER!!!!!
