Reviews for Glossy Chocolate Frosting
"This is my new 'go-to- chocolate frosting! After reading the reviews, I made sure to boil it long enough - 3 minutes at a slow boil. I had 15 cupcakes that I dipped into the warm frosting to coat - easy to do. I had enough frosting to do about 24 cupcakes though. I have the rest in the refrigerator just wondering if I could warm it up and use it again."
"I love the taste and texture of this frosting. This will be my number one go to from now on. Its so easy and not too sweet."
"I like it simple"
"This is the most amazing chocolate frosting recipe, and I have received nothing but compliments for it."
