This was a great recipe basis. However, I like chocolate frosting to be SUPER chocolatey and not very sugary at all. So I used much less sugar (to taste) and melted two oz. unsweetened chocolate with a handful of semisweet chips and a tab of butter. I then added this to the frosting, making it dreamily rich and intense. To bring out the chocolate flavor even more, I stirred some instant coffee with a bit of water (one could also mix it with the extract) and added to taste. The result: sinfully rich and uber chocolatey frosting that holds its shape and is perfect on Chocolate-Zucchini Cupcakes (also on this site). It couldn't get any better.

Delicious and super easy to make. Like other reviewers I only needed about half the recommended amount of powdered suger to achieve the right consistancy. You should also know that the frosting is extremely sweet, so go easy with it. In addition, be sure to sift the sugar so you don't end up with lumpy frosting.

Great frosting!! I made it on the spur of the moment and had to substitute cocoa powder for the chocolate chips by using 6 TBSP. of cocoa and 1/2 cup of butter and half the powdered sugar and it turned out great. Just enough to frost a 9x13 cake.
