One chocolate icing recipe I've been using for along time. Is creamy - so not such a dark colour. This amount will cover top and sides of a double 20-23cm cake.
This is really great. My family loved it. I used 2% milk because I can't bear to open a can of evaporated milk and waste what's left, it was still great and the liquid to sugar ratio made a perfect spreading consistency. Thanks for sharing. - 23 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I have never tried to make a chocolate frosting before, and thought this was simple and absolutely delicious for my first go at chocolate frosting. It was much MUCH better than pre-made frostings. I read one review that this frosting was not chocolate'y enough, and if anything I found it to be more than enough of a chocolate'y taste. I took the advice of others that said that this did not make very much frosting, and doubled the recipe, which made enough to generously frost a 9" X 13" pan of walnut brownies. YUM!! I will certainly make this again. - 14 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
A buttercream frosting babe at heart, I used this as a sub for birthday cupcakes that had to travel by car for ahwile and they were met with rave reviews by both adults and kids alike. Easy to make, not too sweet, and Iwas able to use a pastry bag to pipe it on the cupcakes without too much mess. - 22 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
