    So tasty. I used half a cup of cocoa powder instead of 3/4 cup for less bitterness.

    It’s ok but tastes a bit more like dark chocolate than milk chocolate. If I make again I would slightly adjust for less bitterness.

    Excellent, I would never buy icing in a can, but honestly icing in a can is fine. I prefer to make my own

    We had a little bit leftover. It was so good, we ate what was left in the mixing bowl.

    Substituted the milk with heavy whipping cream and used a stick of butter. Came out rich and creamy. Nice and yummy frosting!

    Only issue i had was it was a little thinner consistancy than i would've liked, otherwise it was delicious!

    I found 6Tbs of butter to not be enough. I used a whole stick of butter because my kitchen aid was struggling because it was too dry. After adding the extra 2Tbs it was smoother. I used 1/3 cup of whipping cream instead of the whole milk and it was light and fluffy. My family loved it.

    It turned out great! The recipe makes just enough to cover a 2 layer 8 inch cake. I would up the recipe a little next time as I like extra filling in the middle 😊

    Very good.. added extra icing sugar to make thicker. I had to use a blender because my machine was in use! bit it still worked
