I don’t know what went wrong, but this was a terrible experience. I followed directions carefully. The mixture stayed liquid. After 10 minutes, I shut it off as mixture stayed very thin. I put it in refrigerator for 3 hours and it didn’t thicken after blending along time. I eventually used it as a base for a buttercream frosting by adding a LOT of powdered sugar. I can’t figure out what I did wrong. HELP?

This frosting definitely tastes like fudge! I wondered how making it in a blender would work. I followed the directions exactly and it turned out great. It took just a few seconds/minutes to reach the consistency I desired. And it was easy to spoon out of the blender cup and spread onto my cupcakes. I frosted 28 cupcakes but probably could have frosted as many as 32. I will share this recipe with my friends!

What an awesome frosting recipe! We thought it was delicious on chocolate zucchini cake and I'm anxious to try it on other cakes as well!

This stuff is great and works well with a chocolate zucchini cake. I like the fact that I was out of powdered sugar, but didn't need it for this icing.

This is a wonderful icing! I have been looking for a fudge like icing for my chocolate cake that I make because I wanted to try something different than my usual buttercream icing. This icing has a beautiful gloss to it and makes the cake look very professional.I made the recipe as-is and with the unsweetened chocolate and the 1cup of sugar iand it ends up with a semi-sweet taste. My family enjoyed it because we didn't want an overly sweet cake since I was serving it with ice cream and berries. However if you want a sweeter fudgy icing perhaps try a semi-sweet or even milk chocolate bar with the sugar as called for in the recipe.Great recipe that I will use often. Thank you!!
