    I only made a 1/2 portion but used much less butter/margarine. It was something quick to add on the brownies for the kids. The flavor was great. Also used vanilla instead of almond for flavoring. Fab! Easy and will make again.  -  08 Apr 2014

    I did not follow the recipe exactly. I substitued 1/2 crisco and 1/2 butter. I also used vanilla extract instead of Almond. I am not much of an almond fan, but the icing was great. Not as sweet as others I have used and alot simpler.  -  27 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
