This recipe is my favorite, but only when paired with chocolate deviled cake...awesome!

REVIEW: recipe rating
I did not enjoy this recipe as much. Mine turned out beautiful and glossy looking but a bit too thin to cover the sides of my cake. Also, it was not as rich because it called for water instead of milk.

It was awesome and easy to make. I used mini semi sweet chips and it turned out great. Then just poured it on a 9X13 cake and was a perfect amount. Loved it!

What a super easy great recipe! I used coco powder too and it turned out very well. This is the easiest, quickest, fewest ingredient-ist frosting recipe ever. Thank you!

Recipe was easy and perfect for yellow cake. I used 2/3 cup sugar and and about 2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips because I was out of baking chocolate.

It's not thick like frosting. Doesn't harden, so it's not a glaze either. I think it's more like a chocolate syrup in consistency. Tastes ok though.

I was looking for a recipe that didn't use powdered sugar. Plus, this recipe happened to use up the exact amount of chocolate and cornstarch "leftovers" that I had. Not bad for "in a pinch."

This was a delicious, easy recipe. I used powdered cocoa (3T= 1 oz) and it was great! I will absolutely use it again.
