I made this to top the "Best Brownies" recipe on this site. It was great. I used a little less vanilla, because I didn't want to run out. For the coffee, I used one single serving instant coffee package mixed with the three tablespoons of water. I melted the butter completely in the microwave. The icing came out thick and spreadable, and tasted great on the brownies.

I was looking for something to go on tope of a chocolate birthday cake and found this recipe. I am pleasantly surprised. I varied the recipe by using 2 tablespoons of Mexican Rum and Expresso Coffee Powder instead of Strong Coffee. Jackpot!!! This recipe has potential in that a lot of variations of the theme is possible. I could try Whiskey, Maraschino, Amaretto, . . . The reason that I did not give it a high Kid Friendly rating is because Coffee is an ADULT taste. Kids do not like coffee that much. Of course, I also discounted this on my overall rating. . . .on the other hand, my son liked it. This is great on Chocolate Cake, and a good recipe to experiment with!

This recipe, as is, has an odd consistency. I even made sure not to add the entire amount of coffee at first, and to only use more as needed to make sure it wasn't too runny. It has a very "foamy" consistency, once applied to the cake. I made a second batch and lightly melted the butter, and added about a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. Perfect! The color was also much better, and the texture was creamy, fluffy, and wonderful! It's a good base to work from, which I appreciate! :)
