Coffee-Flavored Frosting

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"We put this coffee frosting on top of Ghirardelli® double-chocolate brownies. My boys love this combo so much that they requested it for their birthday dessert! This recipe will frost a 8-inch square dish; double the recipe for a 13x9-inch pan or a cake."

This is a winner! Everyone that tasted it raved about how flavorful is was. I did mix it it for an extra two minutes to get it really smooth and fluffy.

I love the flavor! Mine turned out very creamy. I substituted 2% milk for the half-and-half, but otherwise I made exactly as directed.

Very good flavor, but very rich. I would either have it thinner on a 13x9 pan or use less sugar. I would make it again though. Great coffee flavor over brownies.
