Rated 4 out of 5 by TT79 from Good place to start I tried this recipe for the first time and used 3 ounces of melted unsweetened chocolate. I felt it was a little too sugary tasting but I think this will be resolved with an additional ounce of unsweetened chocolate. It should also give it the more intense chocolate flavor for which I was looking. I'm not sure exactly how much milk I added but I just added it until I got the consistency I wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlyssaMiller from Delish I absolutely love this recipe. I have always used cocoa powder, and I do find that I need more milk than the recipe calls for, but there are so many different factors that could play into that, I don't mind. After reading some of the other lower reviews, I am not sure why some people are having a harder time with it. I never have a grease flavor, or just a sugar flavor. This is my go to chocolate frosting recipe!
