A rich, gooey, and very sweet chocolate icing. Try it on a plain yellow cake or, for completely chocolate experience, on a chocolate cake.

Very gooey. I only used 1 cup of sugar which made the icing sweet enough for me. Also I used marshmallows instead of cream. Read More

Sorry but this is nothing but a sugar bomb. mallow fluff is all sugar itself then adding regular cane sugar on top of it made this grossly sweet and over powers cupcakes or a cake. I threw it all in the trash and made regular choc frosting. Too much work boiling temperature checking melting stirring etc.. for a terrible result. A full waste of ingredients. Read More

I made this recipe tonight and it came out really nice. I took the advice of one of the other members and only used 1 cup of sugar. I also got tired of waiting for the sugar and evaporated milk to thicken so after about 10-20 mins of waiting I added the other ingredients. I put it in the kitchen aid mixer while it cooled off. It has a fantastic flavor and it's not very thick. It drizzled down the side of my cake and I have a feeling that the icing will still be soft tomorrow. Great recipe! Thank you Read More

No one in my family is a big cake lover. However when I made this icing the cake was gone in one day. I made one for my co-morkers also and they keep begging me to make it again. It is excellent! Read More

I have made this for my son for the last few years on his birthday cookie cake. I love it too. The only problem I have is if it cools off to quickly. Try spreading the icing on before it cools too much. Very good. Read More

While this was a good recipe and easy to follow it was very sweet and not very thick. Even after it cooled it was still runny and left a puddle of chocolate at the bottom of the plate. Otherwise a good recipe and would use it again just less sugar. Read More

This was really sticky sweet and a huge huge mess to work with but it tasted and looked a lot like marshmallow fluff you get in a jar. I frosted s'mores cupcakes with this icing and put the leftovers in a container to use as a sub for mallow fluff if I ever need it. Read More

this recipe was good but instead of using regular chocolate chips I used white chocolate chips so that the frosting could be colored. Instead of using regular cane sugar I skiped that because otherwise it would be way too sweet. Otherwise this was very good and I would use it again. Read More
