This is a nice fudgy frosting. Does take longer than 3-5 minutes to get to softball stage, at least on my stove.

I have made this recipe twice, and it came out perfect - twice! I almost didn't try it because of the comments, but I followed the recipe as written and it came out perfect. The only thing was letting it cool - it does take a long time to cool - I cooled it in the fridge - once cool, it thickens to the proper consistency to spread perfectly on your cake.
Guest Foodie March 13, 2010 COMMENT: I cooked and cooked this and it never got thick...so I cooled it in a bowl - sitting in a bowl of crushed ice, beating it for quite a while...still too thin. I think there is way too much liquid. I had to add about a cup of powdered sugar to it for it to thicken. Tasted great, but next time I will slowly add the milk until it looks right. Adding the additional sugar made it a little too sweet for my taste.

Loved it. It was very easy to make, I did have to cook longer than 3 to 5 minutes, closer to 15 to 20 minutes for softball. It was very fudgy and delicious!!!!
