SO GOOD!!! It needed tweaking for my 2 layer 9 inch cake. If you follow the directions it is VERY thick and hard for icing a cake but great for brownies. For the cake I used 3 Tbsp of milk and 2 tbsp cocoa for a single batch. Because it sets up so quickly I made 2 seperate double batches, one for the middle of the cake using the original thick recipe, frosted it, then made the second double batch tweaked for spreadability for the outside of the cake. It is glorious... and I don't even like chocolate!

This recipe was excellent - I added a few semi-sweet chocolate chips to tbe melted butter and sugar mixture while still warm, and it turned out rich, velvety and chocolatey! I kept the icing in the saucepan while spreading it on the cake, so that when it began to set somewhat, I would just warm it up on minimum heat with a bit more milk and I could continue to work with it. A total hit and a keeper of a recipe!

Outstanding!! I did add 1/2 cup of Chocolate cocolate chips to the butter & brown sugar mixture to make it a little more fudgy. It got raves from my company. I will use it frequently.
