Rich Chocolate Frosting
December 03, 2007

My family of chocoholics really enjoyed this frosting on a Duncan Hines Butter Recipe cake. Yummmm! It has a very distinctive cocoa taste, but that's what we like. I also really liked the texture. I scaled the recipe to work with 2.5 cups of powdered sugar (that's all I had) and it was sufficient for a 9x13 cake. Since the frosting is so rich, you don't need to go overboard on it. Oh, one last thing, I didn't have real butter so I substituted Land of Lakes margarine and it was just fine. Perhaps I'll try real butter next time just to see what the difference is, but don't let the fact that you don't have real butter on hand keep you from trying this recipe. We thought it was great!
