This very fudgy frosting tastes great, but do NOT attempt to frost a layer cake with it. It is much too stiff to work with. Heated, it can be poured and spread. It would be ideal for brownies or a bundt cake.

I did mine a little differently - instead of melting the butter, I let it get really soft on the counter. Then added all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat it until it was very fluffy. Very light and very good!

this is a great frosting! it was a little scary when i added the cocoa mixture, it ended up like little peas, until I added the milk, it frosted a 13x9 cake wonderfully! I cut the powder suger down to 3 cups, thanks for the great recipe!
