Fabulous as is, but who could resist making it even more intense. I used 3 ounces of the chocolate instead of the 1 ounce, this created a more pronounced chocolate flavor. Some of the other reviewers should try this recipe again with the additional chocolate and they will see it is a winner! If the butter softens too much (as on a humid day) allow extra time for chilling the frosting before adding to the cake.

Unbelievably delicious! This creamy frosting tastes like premium chocolate ice cream. Spreads easily, even over delicate cakes. I've been in the food industry for years, and this is hands down the best chocolate frosting recipe I've come across. Double the recipe for a 13 x 9.

Delicious, flavorful, fluffy, creamy and smooth chocolate buttercream. This is easily worked with to get the degree of chocolatiness you're looking for. I used the pre-melted envelopes of unsweetened chocolate and added, I think, two or three envelopes beyond what the recipe called for, not that it wasn't good without it - for the cake I used it on I just wanted it a deeper chocolate. Leave out the chocolate, add a little less milk, and you've got a great vanilla buttercream! I would double this recipe for a 9x13 cake or for a 9" layer cake and make even more if you want ample to pipe decorations.
