    GREAT recipe! Really tasted like the candybar! Only suggestion is to avoid using it with cupcakes because once the second batch comes out, the frosting has cooled and isn't very spreadable. Thanks for the recipe!  -  30 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This icing was delicious and easy! My kids and my husband loved it. Best of all, it didn't require confectioners sugar. Thanks!  -  03 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is great - tastes just like peanut butter fudge. It doesn't however, taste anywhere like a Mr. Goodbar. I thought it would have a more chocolate taste and was disappointed that it didn't. But, still yummy.  -  29 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
