This is a low fat chocolate icing that is cooked briefly, then cooled to ice your favourite cake. It has a glossy finish that looks as good as it tastes.
Nice idea, I made this to top a flourless chocolate torte. The only thing I would say is it's a bit too sweet for my liking and could do with more chocolate. Maybe cocoa powder adding? Also, may be 'lower' fat but the amount of sugar is far from healthy.. - 17 May 2015
This is the best homemade frosting I have had for sometime! It tastes even better on a homemade cake. It is really glossy and easy to spread and has a very good taste. I frost my cake with this while the frosting is slightly warm. Definitly a keeper! - 26 Feb 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was pretty good. I used cocoa powder instead of Baker's chocolate. It thickened up almost instantly after it began to boil. I actually forgot to add the butter and vanilla at the end, and it still tasted good. I should have waited until it cool to spread it, though, because while it was warm it was too runny. - 31 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
