Thanks for this recipe! Didn't have granulated sugar, believe it or not, so used brown sugar & butterscotch chips. Was fabulous!

I made a cake that broke into 5 pieces when flipped onto serving tray. Decided it was a good time to try a new frosting recipe. I followed the recipe but used 1% milk and 1/2 granulated sugar and 1/2 splenda. It is delicious. Will make again.

I don't want to give this a 4 star but without adding 1-1 1/2 c. powdered sugar after the chocolate chips to make it a 5 star. The flavor is absolutely delicious, it was just the consistency!
CDKitchen Note: This is a boiled frosting, you don't add powdered sugar to it. These icing recipes usually have a slightly more grainy texture (more like fudge).

OMG!!!!! I have only ever made pb icing, my boyfriend is ssoooo tired of that, so I decided to surprise him with a new flavor since he does not like store bought canned icing.. This was so good I had to make a second batch and go buy ice cream so we could use it as a topping.. Thank you for the easy recipe..OUR NEW FAVORITE for all sweets...

This frosting was absolutly AMAZING! I made it with white chocolate chips. I put a little more butter and milk than the recipe call for so it wouldn't over cook and I also boiled it for 2 minutes instead of 1. But instead of stirring the chocolate in I put it in a stand mixer on medium speed for 10 minutes then put it on high for 5 minutes and as soon as it finished whipping I put it right onto a cooled strawberry cake. This was the best icing I ever had! It is definitely worth trying.

I just made this recipe since the store bought one was gross. Oh My Goodness, SO yummy! I used part half/half & skim milk and added a lil' more butter...probably added a few more chips (used semi-sweet) and it's perfect. I dipped the cupcakes. Great easy recipe! ps: I used the leftover icing on sourdough pretzel bits-Mmmm, mmm, good! ;^)
