This is fine. You have to make sure you boil it fully and it thickens as it cools, so wait before you frost!

Most helpful critical review

This familiar recipe is like the one used by my mother and grandmother. It is much better with butter instead of shortening and increase the cocoa to 2/3 c for a chocolate boost.

not that great very gritty from the sugar

It was delicious! The only thing I would say was that the texture was more like a ganache, not a frosting. And I really wouldn't say it was gritty because I sifted the sugar. Loved it!

I used it to frost a chocolate cake, and it works pretty well as a drizzle (using it before it thickens). I also added 6 squares of Hershey's milk chocolate to it which gave it a chocolate boost...

I use this more like a ganache type frosting. This is my go-to recipe if I am out of butter. Followed the directions and it has never been gritty like others have mentioned.
