I substituted 1/2 T half & half for the milk, and used about 2/3C of Nutella instead of the fudge for the most amazing chocolate hazelnut buttercream EVER. Really. It's not overly sweet, just perfect. Great texture, too.

Excellent Frosting, very creamy. However...I omitted the fudge toppping (I did not have any on hand). It turned out very well.

I really was a little skeptical about trying this using the hot fudge topping as an ingredient-but I am glad I did. What a great frosting. I used heavy cream instead of milk and I used Dove-dark chocolate topping and it was so yummy. I put it on the "fabulous fudge chocolate cake" recipe from this site and WOW what a chocolate fix for a chocolate lover! I agree with another reviewer that it doesn't set up well on a hot day with high humidity-so I stuck the whole cake in the fridge after I iced it and it set up well. I took it out 20 minutes before I served it and it was great..Try and make a day or two in advance because chocolate anything tastes better a few days later when the great chocolate flavors come out!
