Great recipe! I use it for my chocolate and vanilla buttercream (just sub additional powdered sugar for the cocoa).

Fantastic recipe! I love that it gives the amounts to make it the different degrees of chocolate-y. I've printed this out and put it in my "most used" cooking folder and will be using this again and again. I made the dark chocolate frosting and it was delicious.

Perfect! Frosted a pan of brownies with it! Made such a lovely mess on the face of my toddler! Can't wait to use this recipe again and again!

Delicious! I used the 1/2 cup of cocoa and it was perfect. Thanks for all the great reviews that caused me to try this frosting. More than enough to frost a 9x13 cake.

Just tried this recipe and it turned out great! Just enough for 24 cupcakes. Will definitely use this again.

Choco monster REVIEW:
Oh....my....G-d!!!! This was so easy and tastes wonderful! I used Country Crock light and half and half and it was amazing! Thank you for sharing, my daughter and I licked the bowl and spatula. This recipe was helpful because we were on a budget. It was the frosting for our Chocolate Mayo cake and will now be my go-to frosting!

I served this yesterday on Sour Cream white cake for my church circle. All the ladies loved it and several asked for frosting recipe. I used the 3/4 cup cocoa. Also used fat-free half and half for milk, as that was all I had. The recipe was easy and so very delicious.

I fell onto this recipe by accident , first I thought the sugar looked too much, and I have been struggling to find a good chocolate icing so I said to my self what the heck why not try it and boy I have not regretted it once. I didn't even have to alter anything, This has become my icing of choice. Thank you so much for sharing.

This frosting is fantastic! I will never make another recipe again. I learned this week that you must use 100% pure cane confectioners sugar. This is perfect buttercream frosting! Thank you!

I've never made frosting before, this recipe worked perfectly, I used the 3/4 cup cocoa for a darker result. It tastes amazing and is light and fluffy.
